Celebrate Your Independence With Das Racist


Listen, I don’t want to pressure you as to how to spend your July 4th weekend, but if you’re not fleeing the city in terror entirely you’re pretty much a knucklehead if you don’t go check out erstwhile Brooklyn duo Das Racist, they of “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell,” live and in person, twice. Ten years from now devout fans — Dasheads — will trade homemade bootlegs of Das Racist performances and have four-hour conversations about the structural differences between the versions of “Fake Patois” (enjoy here) performed Friday night at the Annex and Sunday afternoon at Webster Hall. Bring a seven-layer burrito and get in free.*
