If you’ve ever been to her live show, you’ll know the kind of freedom and emotional lift the occasion can provide. And even though asses are shaking – twerking to the rapid fire bass drums – somehow the aggressive, queer, femme energy casts out all things negative from the room; making the venue a sacred space; a safe space for queer and LGBTQ people to exist without feeling the type of anxiety normally felt in a world that wasn’t designed, well, for LGBTQ people.
While I could describe the New Orleans bounce artist’s music further, words barely skim the service to capture the experience of her live show, which is a life-changing experience to say the least.
Catch Big Freedia back in San Antonio for a show at Paper Tiger on Saturday, April 13. Tickets ($20) are on sale now.
