Die Antwoord

Die Antwoord played their first NYC show, and one of their first U.S. shows ever (they played Coachella), as part of the Creators Project event at Milk Studios on Saturday (June 26th). Lots of other stuff happened at the event too (like M.I.A.) and we have a full review and lots more pictures coming, but in the meantime...

Wow, I am so happy I skipped this event.

Anyone that missed Interpol for this did it wrong.

I thought people only liked this band ironically...what?

True, it's all about the spectacle. But come on they're kinda cute in a dorky way. Mortal Kombat 2010!

So Vice has to approve our guilty pleasures now?

I saw videos and they pulled a good live show, but I chose to go to Interpol instead and reallyyyyyy don't regret doing that.

Sorry but Interpol were boring. I left 15 minutes into their set to see this. I'm not saying Die Antwoord are great or anything...but I am saying at least there was energy in their room and people were having fun, rather than staring at stoic Interpol for the umpteenth time.

Interpol's show was waaaay worth it.

If this is the best S. Africa has to offer, I'd rather listen to a vuvuzela.

This band is amazing. Possibly the next Beatles, or Radiohead.

well then who knew Vegans were such pussys, with bad taste in music...

This group is one has one of the freshest around. Die Antwoord put on an amazing show and deserves some respect for going against the grain stylistically.

Open your ears and stop talking so much.

Wow, just Wow.

They should have had a paddy wagon parked outside this show and ever person in attendance should have been taken to Bellevue for observation. Only mentally retarded people could possibly endure more than 10 seconds of this shit before running for the exit.

This is the worst music I have ever heard.

Posted by Anonymous | June 28, 2010 6:48 PM

worst music you ever heard?
what's so bad about it?
first of all, it's easily relatable (ninja especially)
second of all, it is infectious. it instantly makes you want to dance and experience all life has to offer.

Posted by Anonymous | June 28, 2010 8:42 PM

I love how much hate they get. It must mean they're doing something right if it pisses off this site's crowd so much. Go jerk off to Slanted and Enchanted some more and continue to sound like geriatrics complaining about how it "used to be better." You don't get it and never will.

2 die antwoord posts...this officially marks the end of me tuning in to this station. bv has lost it's way (not that there was ever any direction), but this is absolutely disgusting.

@ 9:12. Yes, they're doing something right...or they just really, really suck, and people aren't willing to tolerate it.

Any of you haters makin' any art of your own? Or just bitching about shit you can't get your head around while collecting unemployment? It's perfectly fine of you don't like it, and I'm sure DA doesn't care if you do like it, but plenty of people do. Go do something with yourself.

"art"

The most loosely used term of our time.


I took a dump that was more painful than usual. I guess by white privileged college girl mentality, I'm a performance artist!
