[POSTERIORS ARE OMNIPRESENT] In a town like Portland, attending a rowdy show by New Orleans sissybounce pioneer Big Freedia is almost a rite of passage. Where else can you watch a gigantic transgendered MC shout-rap over 808 beats while the crowd is coaxed onstage to shake its collective ass, as Freedia’s female Flava-Flav licks booty sweat off the star and screams about seeing “ass everywhere” on a seemingly endless loop? It’s a chaotic spectacle, and one that’s growing. Three years ago, Freedia played Sassy’s. Two days before this show, she’s opening for the Postal Service at the Rose Garden. But it’s much more spectacle over substance, like walking into a Sir Mix-a-Lot acid dream with the music on repeat. If you’ve already witnessed it once, you’ve kinda seen everything on offer. For newcomers, it’s a surreal blast.
