Long before Miley Cyrus took twerking by storm on national TV or before EDM DJ Diplo asked his followers to twerk for him on twitter there was already an originator to the modern ‘twerk.’ Her name is Big Freedia. Already around for nearly decade, the high beat music coming from the ‘Big Easy’ erupted to the NewOrleans bounce sound. Her shows are filled with multiple dancers shaking theorizes without any other moment with the motion that the ‘ass’ is bouncing. Big Freedia did not disappoint bringing her New Orleans bounce to the UC Theater in Berkeley out of all days of the week, Tuesday evening. and for the past 5 years, she has been a staple to Outside Lands’ Gastro Magic stage, making sure the beignets get bounced to the mouths of the hungry audience. Also opening for for Big Freedia wasLow Cut Connie, a rock band from Philadelphia, and Boyfriend, who has been a guest artist for Clusterfest during the summer, offering a cabaret rap / burlesques show to the early concert goers.
