"saw Die Antwoord & MIA @ HARD NYC last night. FRESH! Gummo + Vanilla Ice + Mortal Combat = Die antwoord." - Katy Perry

people copping a feel @ Die Antwoord @ MHOW Sunday night (by Brook Bobbins)
Die Antwoord show

After making their US debut at at Coachella and their NYC debut at at the Creators Project event in June, South African internet-rap group Die Antwoord dug in with a pair of weekend NYC shows on July 24th and 25th. On Saturday, they were part of the M.I.A.-headlined HARD NYC Fest on Governors Island (where they 'stole the show' ), and on Sunday, the group headlined their own show at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Love them them or hate them, there's no denying they cause people to react. To quote Lori Baily who was also at the sold out show at MHOW Sunday night, it was "one of the most rapturous receptions for any band I've ever seen live. Amazing". Saturday's show at Governors Island was just as off the hook, and vulgar, and fun. Regardless of what you think, the signed-to-Interscope, YouTube sucesss story are here to stay, for now at least.

The Answer (aka Antwoord's name translated) have more shows coming up this year (including Virgin Mobile FreeFest at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD, on Saturday, September 25th.

More pictures from both NYC shows, and a few videos, continue below...

I don't get it

I'd rather listen to an hour-long vuvuzela solo than watch these fools for 2 minutes. I still can't believe peeps are lining up for this nonsense!

Waste of time and moneyFEST- ha ha
Glad I saw the real talent last night... at both reunion shows.

I don't know what is uglier, them or their music. I do not get this at all. What utter garbage.

I totally understood why they got a lot of blog coverage and became sort of a meme X amount of months ago, but how the fuck are they playing (headlining?) MHOW now?

is this still novel to people? do some legitimately like it?

these are serious questions.

Die Antwoord DESTROYED MHOW last night! The place was jumping, and the sound was crystal clear and off the hook!

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2010 2:23 PM

also, is everyone in on the 'joke'? I have a hard time believing that's the case. I also have a hard time believing the audience is the one who 'gets it'. My guess is Die Antwoord are the only ones laughing.

I'll have to check out their music seeing all the attention this band is getting. Maybe the haters here should do the same before they spew their bile.

It's like they broke out of the lab where prehistoric humans were being mated with apes.

This group is not real and some sources reported that this snow never even happened.

They fuckin brought it last night.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2010 7:24 PM

I got pushed out of Cap'N Jazz because they decided to change the venue to one that's 1/10 the size. So fuck the organizers for that.... Die Antwoord blew it up last night. SO GOOD.

Posted by wingwalker77 | July 26, 2010 9:03 PM

I can't believe Die Antwoord are even real to be completely honest. Isn't this a joke that was supposed to be old already?

Why are people shitting themselves so hard for this band????

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2010 10:45 PM

the music is beyond terrible, but maybe they do put on a good live show so then i'd understand.

if anyone has this music on their mp3 player though... that i'll never understand

Yes, these guys are for real and have been around for a long time. They destroyed everyone on Sat and killed in Williamsburg. If you don't get it that's your problem. This is some deep shit tho, deep fuckin shit.
