Asheville music photography

Die Antwoord at The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC

Back in January of this year, a lot of people starting asking me if I was going to shoot Die Antwoord when they came into town..."Die Who, er Die What?" I responded. Then I heard that the show sold out in 4 minutes, which really peaked my curiosity. Before I knew it, friends were showing me their infamous music videos on YouTube, and I was sold...I had to photograph this show!

On March 23, 2015, the South African rap-rave group showed Asheville how to party zef style. Die Antwoord (pronounced Di'antvort) is Africaans for "The Answer," and to the 1,000 plus of their cult like fans who were luckily enough to score a ticket, this show was indeed the "The Answer" to their prayers. Here are some of my favorite images from the show.
