Brooklyn Braces for Bootiest, Bounciest Weekend with Big Freedia and Friends

I know it seems like it's too cold to function, but y'all can stop whining because this weekend is gonna be hotttt in the city thanks to BUST fave Big Freedia and the Divas. The New Orleans bounce maven will be performing Saturday night at the Brooklyn Bowl, joined by trusty pals DJ Rusty Lazer and Nicky da B who are also taking New York City by storm this weekend. 


Kick things off right tonight with Rusty Lazer and Nicky da B at SantosPartyHaus. They're performing with Shane Shane, DJ Nita, and Dirtyfinger. The cover is $5 before midnight, $10 after, and it promises to be completely bonkers.



If you need an intro course to the fine art of booty bounce, consider hitting The Egg & Dart Club in Brooklyn for some lessons from Lady Business, one of Big Freedia's dancers. She will discuss what bounce is and what it means to New Orleans, as well as go over some of the basic moves. For just $10 a person, the classes are being held Friday and Saturday night in a queer-friendly and sex-positive environment. 


If you can't make it out this weekend (or don't live in New York), don't worry! Big Freedia and Miss Spoke will be performing for all of America to see on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, January 25th.
