Ya’ll get back now! Big Freedia comes to Neumos | Concert preview

New Orleans’ Big Freedia has built a cult the past few years with her high-energy “bounce music,” a party-centric regional rap subgenre geared specifically to get butts shaking. With a two-season renewal of her Fuse TV reality show, “Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce,” and a forthcoming memoir, tentatively titled “God Save the Queen Diva,” the flamboyant rapper may be edging toward the mainstream. Her dynamic live performances featuring expert-level exhibitions of twerking by Freedia and her dance team are a vital part of the experience, which is all about cutting loose, having fun, and — as her recently released album’s title suggests — to “Just Be Free.”

8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 17, at Neumos, 925 E. Pike St., Seattle; $17 (206-709-94678or neumos.com).
