Big Freedia Announces Turf Club Show
New Orleans artist Big Freedia has just announced his/her very first Twin Cities performance! The gender challenging provocateur of the so called “sissy bounce” musical genre will bring hot beats and hypersexual innuendo to the Turf Club on Dec. 3rd. This show shouldn’t be missed!

From the Turf Club posting:
Bounce and its gay subset Sissy Bounce might be the hip hop style that everyone is talking about in the rest of the country, but in New Orleans the raunchy rhymes and butt-jiggling beats have ruled for a long time now. Big Freedia — say it like Free-da — is the scene’s reigning diva and its acting ambassador outside the city. People will be pushing and shoving to hear her perform her hit “Azz Everywhere” and we’re betting her set will have the highest fun quotient of festival. For clarity’s sake: Big Freedia is a dude but everyone calls her she. Because she’s the queen.
Jacuzzi Boys “Cool Vapors”
While I generally like my garage rock a little more scuzzy, I can appreciate the pop spittle that Jacuzzi Boys use to jazz up their three chord rawk on their new LP Glazin’, which drops tomorrow on Hardy Art. As you can hear on the track “Cool Vapors” below, the group play buoyant, fuzzy pop music with the vigor and energy of a band who live in the hustle and bustle of Miami, FL. The songs are more Wavvves or Soft Pack than Ty Segall or Jay Reatard, for whatever that is worth to you. If the song catches your fancy, stream the whole LP HERE and see the band on Oct. 11th at the Turf Club.
