After Nero finishes pumping Grant Park’s grassy dance floors into a frenzy at Lollapalooza, the duo of Londoners packs up their decks for the Congress Theater. Set in front of a synchronized light show that splashes color across the historic venue’s dome, the pair dives into a special DJ set. Their blend of dubstep, drum and bass, and house broke out in the UK last year when their album Welcome Reality debuted at No. 1. After the album hit US shores, the New York Times proclaimed that it “pulls dubstep toward the arena-pop spotlight without leaving its shadows behind.”
Also performing is Die Antwoord, who describes themselves on their website as a “fre$, futurisktik, flame-throw-flow-freeking, zef rap-rave krew from da dark dangerous depths of Afrika.” These edgy, eccentric, often twisted concept artists put on equally oversized shows, with vocalist Yo-Landi Vi$$er spit-firing rapid lyrics inspired by her native South Africa alongside bandmate Ninja’s hip-hop antics. Their videos have become viral hits, and the intoxicating appeal of both their music and personas led the New York Times to declare them “Johannesburg’s Most Wanted.”
The gleeful chimes of Nintendo and Game Boy systems power up alongside drums and electric guitar and bass when Anamanaguchi takes the stage. A chiptune punk band, this quartet of New Yorkers fuses digital and traditional sounds into a euphoric cloud that leaves audiences as happy as a kitten in a yarn factory.
