Big Freedia & the Divas with Rusty Lazer, Shirlette with Doubledare & Missy Thangs, DJ Chocolate Thunder 

When: Fri., Nov. 11, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $10-12

Consider "Azz Everywhere" a mess of chanting, sliced-up samples and insanely fast beats, in which Big Freedia—known as "the queen diva," or Freddie Ross when she isn't in front of popping and locking dancers—screams about, well, just that: the idea of ass being everywhere. Freedia performs New Orleans Bounce, a region-specific strand of party music tangentially related to hip-hop that's all about aggressive, strip club-lewd butt-shaking. In recent years it has grabbed the ears and asses of people beyond the Crescent City, in part because Americans are finally getting comfortable with wilding out in the club (see also dubstep's success) but also because the aggressive music is totally queer-friendly (Freedia was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award this year) and, oh yeah, fucking crazy. The 9 p.m. bill also includes Shirlette Ammons and Doubledare plus DJ Chocolate Thunder. . —Brandon Soderberg
