There was a whole lot of booty shakin’ going on last night at PS1 as Big Freedia brought New Orleans sissy-bounce to enraptured NYC fans. A super-special added attraction was Aiko’s painted and stenciled stage backdrop. To attend the event, Aiko flew all the way back from Shanghai where’s she’s in the middle of an artist residency.
Still photos are inadequate to describe the performance so if you want to hear the music or see more action go to Freedia’s website, Big Freedia: The Queen Diva (and check out the T-Shirt Freedia is wearing with Aiko stencil) or the recent NY Times Magazine article, New Orleans’s Gender-Bending Rap
