More blipster than Kayne, Queens irono-rappers Das Racist are like a self-aware buddy comedy. But instead of hanging out at White Castle, they’re all about the “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.” Both Wesleyan grads and surprisingly acute sociologists (read Harvilla’s intrepid e-mail interview from a few weeks back), Himanshu Suri and Victor Vazquez debunk race relations as a clash between conjoined fast food outfits. It’s the most stoned game of “Who’s on First” ever set to Garage Band beats. Find out tonight if they’re the future of music, or just waiting for their McDonald’s cash-in. We’re loving it. With LEIF.
