BIG FREEDIA and THE DIVAS: http://bigfreedia.com/bio.php
Featured on HBO's "Treme," The New York TimesVice MagazineThe Fader, Rolling Stone, etc. 


Big Freedia (pronounced “Free-da”) is the undisputed “Queen Diva” of Bounce Music, and performs six or more times a week in various venues throughout her home town of New Orleans. Bounce Music is an original urban music rising up from the intimate and fun-loving nature of the New Orleans housing projects which dominate the city’s street culture, and Freedia performs a derivative of Bounce reserved for self-proclaimed “Sissies” (a locally used name for biological men with varied and ambiguous sexual identities) that has risen to prominence in recent years and features explicitly gay and cross-dressing musicians and themes.  Big Freedia, like other “Sissy” artists, has achieved mainstream success with 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).  Freedia began her musical career almost 15 years ago at the Walter L. Cohen High School in New Orleans, where she was enlisted as choir director from her Sophomore to Senior years.  She sees her performance as a Bounce artist as an extension of this work, often interacting in a call and response/teacher and student, fashion with her audiences.

The Pinhook has become Durham’s premiere venue for live music, excellent DJ’s, basic chilling, and collaborative creative events. Here’s what we got:

- Weekends of Musical Mayhem- featuring the best bands from The Triangle, North Carolina, and well beyond.

- Weeknight Monthlies like Open Mics, Open Jams, Karaoke, Trivia, and DJ sets.

- THE GREATEST BAR STAFF IN THE UNIVERSE!

- Pool, Tekken, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Backgammon, Scrabble, etc. (and people with whom to play these games)

- Nightly specials – the perfect way to make cheap drinks even cheaper.

- A PATIO OUT BACK! OUR PATIO IS SO AWESOME. I LOVE YOU, PATIO.

But the most important thing we have is YOU. The Pinhook is YOUR place. We believe that communities thrive when there is a public place for their citizens to be themselves, whether on stage or on a barstool, relaxing or rocking out. For Durham and the Triangle, the Pinhook is that place.

You gotta make your own fun in life, but we’re here to help.
