Always a blast to see live, New Orleans’ own Queen Diva Big Freedia graced Baltimore with her presence a few weeks back and it was a sweaty, azz-filled evening. I’ve seen her show many times, but never get tired of it. Don’t miss Freedia if she comes to your town!
I shot Big Freedia at DC9 for the Washington Post, one of the first shows after their re-opening, I believe. I was worried at first that it might be a low turnout, but DC crowds are expert at showing up JUSSSSST before the artist they want to see plays, and suddenly it was packed! Great show, one of the funniest I have been to this year. So much ass-shaking, which is to be expected. Freedia was really nice too, I managed to get a quick portrait before the show. I’ll always shoot a bounce show if I get a chance!
