Art by Dave Kloc for Meltdown Comics
I'll be hosting an event with our friends at Meltdown Comics tomorrow night, Tuesday November 13, 2012: an evening with Ninja and Yo-Landi of the South African band Die Antwoord.
The zef ones will be present, signing a beautiful limited-edition Die Antwoord/Meltdown poster by artist Dave Kloc (9-10pm), and screening a bunch of their videos and short films (10-1130pm, this part is sold out).
More details here.
The music video marathon, which will include a conversation with Die Antwoord and Q&A from the in-person and online audience(s), will be live-streamed here
. Definitely tune in to that part, no matter where you are. Should be great fun.
My Boing Boing colleague Mark Frauenfelder will be in the house, along with our sometimes-entertainment-correspondent Sarina, also known as Mark's daughter.
Lots of other special guests should be around, which should make for a lively and colorful webcast. Do tune in.

Even though credit cards now feature an EMV chip for securing transactions, they still have to include the magnetic strip for compatibility with older point of sale systems.
