I was able to shoot Die Antwoord twice this week in Tennessee. First in Memphis March 18 at the Minglewood Hall which is an awesome smaller venue that manages to book some national acts through AC Entertainment booking agency (Knoxville, Tn.). Minglewood also gets a lot of local and up and coming acts. This converted warehouse has a great in house light and sound show and enough room for large acts to incorporate their equipment.

The second show was two nights later in Nashville at the Marathon Music Works which is also a warehouse setting that made the Marathon Cars in the early 1900’s. The old warehouse went vacant for about 30 years but today is a thriving retail spot that holds several businesses including the American Pickers Antique Archaeology. Marathon Music Works also books through AC Entertainment and in-house.

Neither show disappointed to whip the crowd into a frenzy from start to finish. Ninja of course did several stage dives into an awaiting gracious crowd. There were several outfit changes and costumes including Ninja’s Pitbull mask.
