Die Antwoord

When: Tue., Oct. 4, 8 p.m. 2016

While Die Antwoord technically has three members (Ninja, Yo-Landi Visser and beat annihilator DJ Hi-Tek), Ninja and Visser are yin and yang put into motion. Like an extraterrestrial being, Visser rocks a platinum chili-bowled mullet and raps, sings and coos like a demonic baby doll on Molly; meanwhile the swaggering Ninja (a cocky, Afrikaans-accented mic-assassin) raps often about being “well-hung.” The group is probably best described in one word: “zef.” The Afrikaans slang isn’t likely to ever appear in Merriam-Webster’s, but as Yo-Landi Visser describes the word: “people who soup their cars up and rock gold and shit. Zef is, you’re poor but you’re fancy. You’re poor but you’re sexy, you’ve got style.” Basically, Die Antwoord is zef to death.

Price: $35-$45
