Big Freedia Played Brooklyn Bowl on Halloween and Things Got...Really Weird, You GuysBy Andrew St. Clair
Once you're past the age of 13, there are really only two ways to do Halloween: you can don all black, wander aimlessly around a neighborhood bar, and, when someone asks you what you are, respond with "Exhausted..." OR! You can get "sugar" high, steal a child-sized Buzz Lightyear costume from the family that lives next door, and party like wasn't just a hurricane that devastated your entire city.
While many of us did the former, Big Freedia's Brooklyn Bowl show brought out that latter. And, as is customary with any Big Freedia show (or any Halloween party, really), bare asses were the featured guests of the night. Check out Andrew St. Clair's photos below (NSFW blah blah).
