Some really good pics of “Die Antwoord” at Coachella Festival at this link
or catch the video of them fresh off youtube… so fresh in fact that sound is pretty pants….but it does give you a wee peek into their performance.
Cell-phone bootlegs still have some way to go before destroying the DVD market im sure.
A brief excerpt from a review by monstersandcritics.com of Coachella had this to say about “Die Antwoord”
“Immediately after, I went to see Die Antwoord – a South African rap group that was given a 20 minute set a couple of weeks before the festival and has never played in the US before. Some people say they were terrible. I say the Sahara Tent was nearly brought down they were rocking it so hard, rapping in English and Afrikaans and generally cursing up a storm.
When they played “Enter the Ninja” I half expected them to bring out Leon Botha – an artist and one of the longest survivors of progeria. Admittedly, Ninja, the lead singer, does look like Vanilla Ice, but only if Vanilla Ice spent a few years in prison.
By the end of the set, Ninja was down to his boxers and they were joined onstage by, I think, 2plumpDJs dancing around in their underwear as well. ”
I will add more once I have found more sources. But all things aside…It looks like “Die Antwoord’s” first big international gig went down a storm. nice one.
