Big Freedia Launches Booty Battle Video Game

Mario Bros. Pac Man. Donkey Kong. Now: The Big Freedia Booty Battle. New Orleans Queen of Bounce, Big Freedia, is excited to announce the launch of the first ever Big Freedia Booty Battle interactive (HTML5) video game. Created by the Chicago-based marketing company Eyes & Ears Entertainment, the game will launch on Monday, April 2 on and exclusively on music/culture magazine Just like being at a live Big Freedia show, the game lets players challenge opponents to some azzz shakin by using the arrow keys. The faster the azzz moves, the more points players acquire. The prize for the one with the highest score? A free Big Freedia track.  Fans can tweet winning scores and keep track of their progress with a score board as well.

In conjunction with the game Big Freedia is preparing for some live battles on a Spring and Summer tour unlike any other. From Baltimore to Bonnaroo, from Madison to Manchester, Big Freedia is coming to a town/festival near you. Known to prompt sweaty after-parties and dance-floor freak-outs, a Big Freedia live show should be on everyone’s bucket list because if you haven’t seen her and her Divas shake their asses at lightening speed, you haven’t lived!

Freedia played herself on two episodes of HBO series ‘Treme’ and is the subject of a documentary film and a TV series on cable…coming to a network near you soon (details to be announced shortly!)

Last year Big Freedia released Scion A/V Presents Big Freedia EP, produced largely by New Orleans beat maker BlaqNmilD. Her highly-anticipated debut LP No More Dreams, It’s Reality  is due out Fall 2012!
