ev2bk Live Music – Das Racist @ Bowery Ballroom

So I know that we’ve already posted a couple times about Das Racist, but it’s kind of inevitable given that homeboys are eeeerrywhere these days. New York magazine just wrote a story (in the print edition, even!) in which they describe the duo as “sawing the legs out from under hip-hop as they celebrate it.” And a couple of weeks earlier, the New York Times ran a review of their recent show at Union Pool, in Williamsburg, in which the central argument seemed to rebuke most of DR’s detractors by asserting that “their sloppiness is a mask for detailed, affectionate hip-hop parody, name-dropping KRS-One and Asher Roth as easily as W. E. B. Du Bois and the literary critic Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak.” Hima and Victor seem to pretty much have NYC on lock at this point.

If you weren’t able to make it out to the Union Pool show, then you’ve got a shot tonight, as they will be headlining at the Bowery Ballroom along with supporting acts Gordon Voidwell (listen to “White Friends”), POPO, and Old Money.

Get ready for some madness! In the meantime, here’s a video to fuel the fire (but don’t worry, they aren’t only a “fast food rap” group.
