South African counter-culture rap/rave crew Die Antwoord have been setting stages ablaze in their homeland for quite a while now, and their coarse lyrics and flagrantly flamboyant live shows are finally starting to catch on here in the States. The outlandish group is led by Yo-Landi Vi$$ser and Ninja, who both bring a lot of energy and attitude. Die Antwoord are touring in support of their most recent record, Tension, which seems to have divided their fans and critics alike. But the group doesn't pay that type of scrutiny any mind — instead operating on the "zef" principle, a crass personal philosophy based on calculated foolishness and outrageous vulgarity. 18+.
