Blizzard? Psh. That doesn’t mean you can’t party. New Orleans Sissy bounce is making NYC hawt this week: Sissy rapper Vockah Redu has five upcoming shows in the city (including an unlisted show TONIGHT), so no excuses for missing out. For those that aren’t familiar with bounce, it’s a regional rap genre created around the New Orleans housing projects. Its raw beats have influenced mainstream New Orleans rappers like Juvenile, and Vockah Redu and other Sissy rappers will be featured in the next April/May issue of BUST!
Vockah Redu’s NYC shows include an unlisted show at Happy Ending Lounge; Thursday night he’ll be at the Abrons Art Center for a free art show by Aubrey Edwards; and Friday night he’ll be at the House of Yes for REFUGE and RoyalPink’s ONE NIGHT STAND: An Evening of Dirty Dancing. Open Vodka Bar w/entry from 10-11 pm and BYOB. YES.
