If Please Don’t Forget Da B exposed Nicky Da B to a group of listeners unable to drop it like it’s hot at any of the next generation New Orleans bounce artist’s raucous live shows, Diplo’s “Express Yourself,” featuring Nicky Da B’s hyperactive rhymes, pushed even further, introducing his music—and even bounce music in general—to an audience unfamiliar with Louisiana legends like Big Freedia and DJ Irv. Tonight, Nicky and fans both old and new come to Gowanus’s Littlefield (and tomorrow to the East Village’s Drom), intending to make the venue’s booty shaking per square foot ratio the highest in the city.
