I'll be hosting an event with our friends at Meltdown Comics tonight, Tuesday November 13, 2012: a video marathon and poster-signing with Ninja and Yo-Landi of the South African band Die Antwoord.
On sale will be a beautiful limited-edition Die Antwoord/Meltdown poster by artist Dave Kloc (artist signing is 9-10pm), and after that we'll be screening a bunch of their videos and short films (10-1130pm, this part is sold out).
More details here.
WATCH THE WEBCAST: A reminder that 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. Please do join us, wherever you are.
Chris Hardwick of Nerdist tapes his podcast there often, and he'll be in the house tonight, along with Boing Boing founder Mark Frauenfelder, and many other special guests. Do tune in.
