The first bounce party that I’ve ever attended happened in 2013. Big Freedia was the headliner for a Dutty Chutney party at the Barbary, a well known club in Philly’s Fishtown neighborhood. At that time, I tried to immerse myself in all things New Orleans before I moved there. I watched a few bounce videos on youtube but nothing compared to seeing it LIVE. I managed to get on stage and snap a few flicks of Big Freedia, her dancers, and the party people in attendance. We need more bounce parties in this city.
