New Orleans Bounces Into Burque

Big Freedia shakes down Effex

King Texas

It's a form that took shape in the hallways of New Orleans' densely populated projects. Bounce rap began to emerge in the early '90s as a crude yet compelling style of hip-hop. It prominently featured the repetitive "triggerman" beat, while the lyrics, imbued with call and response, discussed topics like Popeyes chicken, second line parades, street life and various areas of New Orleans, all the while soliciting female audience members to perform dance moves, to "shake that thing like a salt shaker." In recent years, bounce rap, once snubbed by the Jazz Fest set, has seen a rise in popularity and national attention thanks to the style sissy bounce and queer artists like Katey Red, Sissy Noby and Big Freedia. Find out what all the mind-bogglingly amazing booty shaking is about tonight when the Queen Diva Big Freedia appears in Albuquerque for the first time. The show, which is sponsored by Meow Wolf, T-Cubed and Maynard Del Mar, takes place at Effex Night Club. Not to be missed, y'all. Effex Nightclub · 9 pm · $10 · 21+
