Coming back to celebrate #EB25 with us is BIG FREEDIA, known as the Queen of Bounce. BIG FREEDIA is a New Orleans-based rapper and ambassador of Bounce music. A vibrant twist on hip-hop, Bounce is characterized by call-and-response lyrics over rapid-fire beats and accelerated booty-shaking. After running the New Orleans club scene for over two decades, BIG FREEDIA is now bringing the Bounce movement world-wide. BIG FREEDIA released her much-anticipated debut LP,Just Be Free. Named one of the ‘best electronic releases of 2014’ by Rolling Stone.In 2015, BIG FREEDIA penned her first memoir,Big Freedia: God Save the Queen Diva! (Gallery Books/Simon & Schuster) and her second full length album will be released this year! This is BIG FREEDIA’s first Empty Bottle apperanced since 2014.

It’s round TWO of our EB25 series, where we bring back bands of Bottle’s past throughout the year. Come one, come all – let’s party like it’s 1992.

Thanks to our partners The A.V. Club, Topo Chico USA, & Eventbrite for supporting our 25th Anniversary! #EBlovesyou
