FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRIDE SUNDAY AT PUBLIC WORKS FEATURING BIG FREEDIA, LADY TRAGIK, SMASHELTOOTH, ANDREW THE PIRATE, DICK VAN DICK, VOGUE AND TONE.
Sunday June 30th, 2013 Sunset SF, Fresh Bakin’ and Whatever Forever (120 Minutes/Future:Perfect) present a special evening at Public Works with New Orleans MC and Bounce Music pioneer Big Freedia, Los Angeles rap artist Lady Tragik, Santa Cruz hip-hop DJs Smasheltooth and Andrew the Pirate, Power-Punk-Pop artist Dick van Dick, and San Francisco’s own Vogue and Tone.
Big Freedia is an accomplished “Bounce” Rapper who lives in New Orleans and has had several New Orleans hit singles such as “Gin in My System” and “Azz Everywhere!” from her albums “An Ha, Oh Yeah” (1999) and “Queen Diva” (2003). Bounce is an original urban music rising up from the intimate and fun-loving nature of the housing projects which dominate the city’s street culture. “Sissy Bounce” is the informal name for a derivative of Bounce that has risen to prominence in recent years and features explicitly gay and cross-dressing musicians and themes. Big Freedia is at the forefront of this movement and
Indie blogger Velvet Park describes Lady Tragik as “a renaissance woman who takes photos of her sexy California life, makes short art-films, collaborates with designers and dancers and actresses, and writes, AND raps. It should go without saying that she’s a rising star in art or fashion or music or possibly even all of the above. She’s repping an emerging scene out there that appears to be glimmering with creativity and excitement.”
Smasheltooth and Andrew the Pirate both represent the Santa Cruz / West Coast hip hop scene and are notorious for infecting dance floor jams with inner-city raps, reggae infused bass, and soulful hip hop.
Dick van Dick and Vogue and Tone will start the evening for what promises to be the party of Pride Weekend. Tickets are available at Public Works and http://ticketf.ly/185XGNq
