More details coming in on the Big Freedia and the Divas date, and man, are they exciting. DJ Diamond, Chicago juke artist, will get us started with the show at 9:30 p.m. You may have caught him in the Sett last semester with Chrissy Murderbot. He’ll likely bring dancers with him as well, who probably don’t need dance lessons but may want to partake in what’s going down at 8:30 anyway – Before the show Big Freedia’s going to show you how to Bounce. Bounce is the booty-centric style of dance Big Freedia’s music is based around. See the video at the bottom of the page to see what (amazingness) you’re in for.
The exciting news doesn’t end with that show. Renowned Madison reggae act Natty Nation will be rocking the the Terrace Ratsa-style on June 23rd. Phonetic ONE, the Madison rapper who is currently a contestant in the Chegg College Battle of the Bands (which has included contestants like Local Natives and Mike Posner in the past) and has played shows with F. Stokes, will get the bleubird and Ceschi show started on April 21st in the Sett.
