"...The grilled sandwiches from Burro Cheese Kitchen will get you through Peaches, and old-school-obsessed SLAB BBQ is the obvious pairing for Wu-Tang. East Side King's seminal street food deserves to be enjoyed with seminal Bronx DJ Afrika Bambaataa, and Cold Ones' paletas will cool you down after shaking it to Big Freedia..."
"...Which reunited Nineties hardcore band will be excavated for an appearance? Will they book Big Freedia yet again? To try your hand at GTF, enter your best 20 guesses here...."

"...Move over Big Freedia, Christeene's in the house and she's brought along an ass that just won't quit. When not dropping lyrical "Tears From My Pussy," Waste Up, Kneez Down, the long-awaited local debut from New Orleans drag transplant Paul Soileau, pumps like, well ....."
"...Chaos in Tejas founder Timmy Hefner knows records. He's put out 31 of them on his local 540 Records label, including a couple from his festival talent pool performing today through Sunday: Big Freedia's "Azz Everywhere" single and a 12-inch by Japan's Zyanose..."
"...Aside from Rakim's last-minute cancellation and the development of a chest pain OTR coined "Black Stage Lung," the rest of the fest went off without a hitch. NOLA bounce queen Big Freedia and Spank Rock made azzez throw fits and tantrums, respectively, not unlike the dancehall throb of Diplo/Major Lazer's split personality..."

"...Contrast that crowd with the frothing masses over at Red 7 for Big Freedia - they knew exactly how to dance. Her call-and-response, deep bass sound is a missive, not just background music..."
"...But from the looks of all of the emergent afterparties in the works, it should be huge. Just check this week's list of upcoming events: Big Freedia at Red 7! Cazwell at OCH! The Love Parade (a party, not a parade) at Elysium! Austin Pride also announced that this year's September Austin Pride Parade will occur very early in the morning (sorry, service industry!), so the June 3 QueerBomb March will be 2011's only nighttime gay pride procession..."
"...Backed by two singers with another duo working the boards, the two spliced cuts from January's The One ... Cohesive, hitting a high note with the eerie violin pulls of "Came Up."

"...Today is the art day and we've got a couple of Prospect 1.5 events to attend - all around St. Claude - including seeing Austin's own Christeene in a NOLA context with Big Freedia, and MC Sweet Tea (who, by the way, looks just as balls-insane as Christeene if not, dare we say, moreso)..."
