What joy, and what a racket. The cause of this revelry? One, and a good one at that: the latest portion of “zef rap” and sick stuff in the form of a video by the controversial Die Antwoord. This time it’s the girl in the group, Yo-Landi Vi$$er, who’s the centre of attention. She is the “Rich Bitch”, more attracted to shiny and extravagant jewellery than a kleptomaniac magpie. There’s Versailles-inspired furniture, an army of worshippers armed with fans, her inseparable partner Ninja sporting some fine art on his skin, and a story about personal improvement –from the Boer sewer to world fame– to give it an heroic-epic-histrionic touch. As if we didn’t know all those golden leggings are from American Apparel… Die Antwoord will be appearing at Sónar 2011. The Festival will take place from 16th to 18th June at the CCCB in Barcelona, the Fira Gran Via in L’Hospitalet, L’Auditori in Barcelona and the Teatre Grec in Barcelona. Tickets are on sale here.
Sónar Galicia will be held on 17th and 18th June at the EXPOCoruña in A Coruña. Tickets are on sale here.
