Freedia Pleads Guilty


Apparently, it is not all about dat azz. For Big Freedia it is also about assets. Freedia, legally Freddie Ross Jr., plead guilty to felony fraud charges connected to 35,000 dollars in illegal Section 8 vouchers on Wednesday (3.16).


Azzets A Liability?


Azz does not trump assets. Local bounce hero Big Freedia is in trouble with the Feds. On Tuesday, federal prosecutors formally accused of Freedia, legally Freddie Ross Jr., of committing fraud to continue receiving Section 8 vouchers.


Big Freedia, Ya "Heard"? (Listen)


Big Freedia received lots of PR for her work on Beyoncé’s polarizing “Formation” track. However, the Queen of Bounce has plenty of material of her own to propel her mercurial rise. This week, Freedia teased her summer 2016 album with the release of a new track, “I Heard.”


Don't Call It A Comeback: Mr. Ghetto's New Release


Before New Orleans became a factory for reality shows and before Morris Bart went viral, there was Mr. Ghetto. The local bounce artist broke onto the scene with the popular “Wally World” video, released a few more tracks, and found himself in a standoff with the NOPD’s SWAT unit. After an absence, Mr. Ghetto is back with a new video.


Today in NOLA 4.16.15


Tonight offers a double bill of art in the CBD, an alt country heart-throb at One Eyed Jack’s, and lots of bounce at Republic. On St. Claude, Ginger Licous is bringing her edgy burlesque to the Hi Ho. Today, April 16, is the date New Orleans was officially founded in 1718. Now, more to do a few hundred years later.


Freedia & BERG Bout 'dat "Dangerous" Azz (Video)


Big Freedia may have a hit show on FUSE, a world record, and a gallery exhibition, but she never forgets that best azz is NOLA azz. Today (4.01,) the Queen of Bounce released her latest video featuring the Big Easy Roller Girls. Click through to watch the action.


Baby Erin Bounces Back


Baby Erin taught us how to bounce our booties like basketballs, then she became teacher for a day. The “Princess of Bounce” is getting a little older, but she still has skills bigger than her size. This week she released a new video. Click through to check it out.


Today in NOLA: 3.5.15


Books, bounce and bluegrass are all on the menu this Thursday. Dance troupe of the legendary Paul Taylor, Taylor 2, is in town for three nights, as well. On this day in 1766, Antonio de Ulloa became Louisiana’s first Spanish governor. Now, more on Thursday events. 


Today in NOLA: 2.12.15


Babylon, Chaos, Muses. Those three words roll off the tongue as if they were always meant to be together. They roll Uptown along the regular route, with Muses to begin at Jefferson and Magazine. Republic hosts a Mardi Gras Bounce show featuring Big Freedia smack dab in the middle of Carnival season. Led Zeppelin 2 pays homage to the historic rock band at the House of Blues. Singer Kina Grannis is at One Eyed Jacks, and dub heavy electronic master Kastle performs at the Hi Ho.


Freedia Wants Your Azz


Musicians have their niches. John Lennon was an advocate for peace. Method Man likes the smoke. And, NOLA’s Big Freedia loves the azz. On Thursday (1.15), the Queen of Bounce will take her penchant for posteriors to a new level, hosting a public photo shoot devoted to azzes of all shapes, sizes, and colors.
