Whatever you did this weekend probably wasn't as bezerk as the Bed-Stuy version of Hoodstock, an Oakland party exported to Willoughby Avenue on Saturday that brought New Orleans sissy bounce star Big Freedia to Brooklyn. Big Freedia and his airborne-booty dancers were the de facto headliners, but the usual Bikes in the Kitchen all-stars were also in the house (Ninjasonik, Japanther, Cerebral Ballzy). Ninjasonik used Sunday to ReTweet a flurry of misspelled praise ("long time since been 2 proper undrgrnd show, left soakin wet w/ legs bruised up like a crak whore frm da pit" wrote @SaintElasticat) and our photographer Rebecca Smeyne, who's basically seen the Japanther boys more times than their own parents, also couldn't stop e-raving about the party either. Even Matt and Kim testified: "If you were not at hoodstock tonight you missed out and I am sorry. It was an amazing show!" Sure looks like it. Full gallery here, selected photos below.
