Die Antwoord to Play Marathon Music Works March 20


Die Antwoord (pronounced “Dee Ahnt-Voord,” and translated as “The Answer” from Afrikaans if you’re curious) are, by all measures, one of the most unique artists in the world, and this spring, March 20, the trio will return to Nashville for a performance at Marathon Music Works. Based in Cape Town, South Africa, the group draw their intense, exaggerated, and often shocking image from the regional “zef” counter-culture, which, essentially is the “anti-posh,” a “poor but still fancy” attitude. Channeling elements of hip hop, alternative rap, and electronic music, the Die Antwoord consist of two MCs and a (often uncredited) DJ, rap in multiple languages, and deliver socially-charged, shocking, and intensely fun cuts on their three full-length releases. Their show is a spectacle to behind, and you don’t want to miss out on it! Grab tickets when they go on sale this Friday, Jan. 16, at 10 a.m. here.
