Dave Pianka and his Making Time dance party crew are keeping up the heat on their "Summer of Radness" 10th anniversary celebration with an impressive run dance parties in the coming weeks.First, it's propulsive South African rap group Die Antwoord, whose "zef" - Afrikaans slang for redneck - music has sparked a blog debate about authenticity and whether they're a "real" or "fake" band and if those terms mean anything anymore. Ninja, Yo-Landi Vi$$er and DJ Hi-Tek (pictured) are at Club Voyeur in Center City on Friday. Die Antwoord means "the Answer" in Afrikaans, but there's no word on whether Allen Iverson is a fan.
On August 15, Making Time returns to the Flying W Airport Resort - the Medford. N.J. outdoor venue with the airplane shaped pool - with the Bradford Cox-fronted Georgia indie rock band Deerhunter as the main attraction. And for the grand finale, Dave P has reeled in a big kahuna in the form of James Murphy's LCD Soundsystem, whose 2010 release This Is Happening is one of the critical consensus albums of the year. And the venue is as intriguing as the booking, with the final Making Time of the season going off just has summer ends on September 24 (a day before the band plays the Virgin Mobile FreeFest in Maryland with M.I.A., Pavement, Joan Jett, Trombone Shorty and others) at the Naval Cruise Terminal at the Philadelphia Navy Yard all the way down at the end of South Broad Street. Advance tickets are available here. LCD's "Drunk Girls" is below.
