I saw Big Freedia open for the Postal Service in 2013. I didn’t really know anything of the act before the show, but what I saw was 45 minutes of 4 women and a cross-dressing man (Freedia) twerking and/or singing to the music.
Word had it that Benjamin Gibbard picked Big Freedia to open for his electronic-based band in order to challenge the mind-set of the people who came to the string of shows.
2.5 years later, all I really remember is the phrase “Ass Everywhere”. Ladies and gentlemen, Big Freedia performing “Azz Everywhere”.
