There were a bunch of upcoming shows announced this week, but nothing super high profile. For my money, the top announcement was Flo Rida, which will come to the Venue of Scottsdale on Nov. 1.
Flo Rida, in case you can’t put names with songs, is the dude who did “Low” or, as everyone in Arizona seems to call it “Apple Bottom Jeans.”
By the way, here’s where you can get them apple bottom jeans (jeans), boots with the fur (with the fur), them baggy sweat pants and the Reeboks with the straps. When it comes to finding a big booty to smack, you’re on your own.
Here are the rest of your show announcements, and a really cool Flo Rida-related video.
This is a homemade video for Girl Talk’s “Hands in the Air,” which features a memorable mashup between “Low” and The Velvet Underground’s “Sunday Morning.”
