When: Sat., Feb. 4, 9 p.m. 2012
The reigning queen of the detonative rap catharsis that is New Orleans bounce, Big Freedia tears through town for another wild night of booty-shakin' beats. Armed with her brash, punk-tinted hip-hop, the colorful 6-foot-2-inch Freedia automatically commands whatever stage she's on. Her magnificent vibe is a witch's brew of manic energy, anarchic all-inclusivity, and, of course, an affinity for the eternal party. A few of Atlanta's own foremost party starters round out the bill.
