Treme is a brand new show from David Simon (The Wire, Corner, Homicide) and Eric Overmeyer (Law & Order) about musicians in New Orleans beginning months after Katrina. From the trailer above this looks amazing, seeing the Indians and the second lines and amazing music and the soul of the city. Finally got a chance to go last year and participate in a second line and get a personal guided tour of the Backstreet Cultural Museum and I fell in love. Treme starts this Sunday, April 11th at 10PM. Saw this on Becks Cajun Cafe facebook page, going to have to go back asap.

Tonight, Spank Rock will be performing live on the last stop of the sissy bounce tour featuring New Orleans artists Big Freedia, Sissy Nobby and Rusty Lazer. Emynd opens things up at 10. Drinks are only $1 til 11 and cover is $5 all night.
Bounce music is an energetic style of New Orleans hip hop party music characterized by call and response style party and Mardi Gras Indian chants and dance call-outs that are frequently hypersexual. Like crunk, Miami bass and Baltimore club, bounce is a highly regional form of dance music that has influenced a variety of other rap subgenres and even emerged in the mainstream. Lil’ Jon and the Ying Yang Twins frequently incorporate bounce chants into their music (such as, “shake that thing like a salt shaker”) and slang (such as “twerk”) And there are even several mainstream Bounce records like Juvenile’s “Ha” and “Back That Azz Up” which many people do not realize are actually BOUNCE records. And, as unlikely as it may sound, there are also a lot of openly gay, overtly camp, cross-dressing male rappers in bounce who are part of a phenomenon affectionately known as “sissy rap”.
Check out this mix that Rusty Lazer did last year featuring both Big Freedia and Sissy Nobby.

South Rakkas Crew get mad again with a brand new release on Mad Decent. Mad Decent head honchos picked up Mad Again from the Mix Up and offer up an all star mix treatment featuring remixes from Diplo, Drop the Lime, Boy 8-Bit, Emynd, JOTS, Fake Blood and more. Emynd’s Nola Bounce is my highlight, but the Boy 8-Bit goes in hard. Download it now
