GOING LIVE: Die Antwoord

© Jeff Parsons

WHO: Die Antwoord

WHERE: Phoenix Concert Theatre, Toronto

WHEN: October 24 2010

One calls himself Ninja, the other Yo-Landi Vi$$ser. Together, they’re Die Antwoord, a South African hip-hop group that’s stolen the heart of a major record label (Universal) and caught the attention of every single individual that listens to music. So much to the point, their average crowd is extremely diverse. There’s innocent girls who love the chorus of “Enter The Ninja” standing right next to older folk who look like they don’t belong. Has the uncanny hype around Die Antwoord shadowed their sound? Perhaps, as audience members seem more interested in talking about ninjas and saying the word “fokken” than listening to the actual music being blasted.
