BOUNCE | Big Freedia 

Big Freedia has garnered national attention for being the queen ambassador of bounce, the typically hyper-local New Orleans style. It's a highly energetic, fast-beat, call-and-response form of hip-hop meant to be bounced to, whether it's twerking, a wiggle, or shake. An LGBTQ person of color, Freedia will play Funk 'n Waffles Music Hall as part of Rochester Black Pride 2017. You may also recognize Freedia from Beyoncé's song "Formation." ("I did not come to play with you hoes / I came to slay, bitch.)

"Bounce It Out featuring Big Freedia" will take place Saturday, August 12, at Funk 'N Waffles, 204 North Water Street. 9 p.m. $25 advance; $50 VIP. rochester.funknwaffles.com; bigfreedia.com.
