Music: Die Antwoord to play Club Nokia

Regardless of Die Antwoord's mythology, one fact not up for debate is the rap-rave trio's skills behind a microphone. Like another recently rehabilitated white rapper (that'd be Eminem), frontman Ninja found his own rhythmically exacting flow that functions as a serving tray for his Afrikaans slang and droll boasting. Yo-Landi Vi$$er plays the role of sneering, unattainable sex kitten, a beloved trope in rap from Salt-N-Pepa to Nicki Minaj. She sees no schism between thrusting a hand up her crop-top and dropping low at Ninja's behest while wearing oversized sweat pants with a vulgar and definitive rejection notice printed across the rear. Club Nokia, 777 Chick Hearn Court, L.A. 9 p.m. Fri. $26.
