Want to go see Die Antwoord on us?

If you read that headline and thought to yourself “FOK!” then this post is totally for you. If you didn’t, you are clearly missing out on life. As you should know Die Antwoord is the most zef rave rap crew from South Afrika ever, hell the world ever, maybe the only rave rap crew even. It’s seriously next level. That shit got mega huge on the web earlier this year, and their first album ‘$O$’ just came out today. I’d say it looks awesome, but since I designed it that *might* sound a little self serving. Anyway, if this is still all news to you, or if you remember seeing their stuff a few months ago but haven’t heard anything recently, check this video that just came out for ‘Evil Boy’ which is off this album. Warning, it’s sorta NSFW. Maybe. Depending on where you work.


OK, all that aside they are playing Sunday, October 17th at The Music Box and I’ve got a few tickets to give away. You want them? Post a comment and tell me why you deserve the tickets. (What’s that you say, you promise to dress up like Ninja or Yolandi? That’s a pretty good reason.) At 10 PM today I’ll consider the responses and pick whoever impresses me most. So whatchu got?!

HARD LA Cancelled

In a confusing turn of events, HARD LA which was scheduled for July 17th has been cancelled. Initial reports were that is was being cancelled for “security concerns” which is generally vague code for “we didn’t sell enough tickets and need to cut our losses” but has now been changed to “postponement and magnification.” Basically the released statement is that the event is getting moved back to August when it will be bigger and better (yet no word if the bands booked for the July 17th version will still be on board) and at the same venue. Anyone who purchased tickets for the July 17th event will automatically get into the August version, and not to leave people totally stranded, DIE ANTWOORD will be playing on July 17th at the El Rey with a few of the other previously-booked-for-Hard-LA-acts, but tickets for that are being sold independently. Does this make sense to you yet? All I know is that I still won’t be in LA on the 17th which means I’m still going to miss Die Antwoord which means I’m still bummed.
