Die Antwoord at the Fox Theatre- A Concert Review

Die Antwoord put on an energy-filled show at the Fox Theatre in Oakland on Thursday evening. We have seen them before at an array of venues, one being an outdoor show at Austin City Limits Music Festival in 2012; the show on Thursday compared favorably. The more intimate setting made for an amazing and lively show. Maybe we couldn't hear as well the next day znd we went to work with blind splotches in our eyes, but we would see them again, repeatedly!

Die Antwoord is a South African rave-rap group consisting of female vocalist, Yolandi Visser, male vocalist, Ninja, and DJ Hi Tek.   They are known for their “out-there” appearance designed for shock value in what they refer to as “Zef” culture.

The group released its newest album in June of this year, entitled "Donker Mag;" however they only performed four songs from that album, with “Pitbull Terrier” being one of them.  It is their most popular song from the new album and is featured below. They played most of the songs from the first album “$O$,” and those were the crowd pleasers.  Their encore was “Enter the Ninja”.

If you ever have the opportunity to see Die Antwoord, we would advise to take advantage of that! It was also Ninja’s birthday yesterday, so Happy Birthday Ninja!!
