KEITH HARING AT THE DE YOUNG

A quick look at the de Young’s massive new Keith Haring retrospective, The Political Line. Focusing on Haring’s more deliberately political works, the pieces take on consumer culture, technology, sexuality, and racism head on, and span the length of Keith’s short but prolific career.

ANTWON – “3RD WORLD GRRL”

A weekend slap and an excellent new tape from the South Bay superstar

Antwon

Heads in the Bay have to be juiced these days. As our good friend Yung Wave Dash observed the last time Antwon’s name came up on the Bowties, there’s a talented, forward-thinking class of rappers coming up Bayside, who share in common a certain eclecticism. Maybe most eclectic among them though, is the growing body of work Antwon’s accumulated already.

His fourth and most recent offering, In Dark Denim is the audio equivalent of the all-caps its song titles show up in in your iTunes library. It’s full of big, dirty noise, ranging in tone from grimy electronic neon to crispy retro-funk, and providing a perfectly warped canvas for Antwon’s outsized personality–and some solidly adult themes. “3rd World Grrl” is a bouncy slab of bargain-bin ’80s groove, just the kind of throwback jam that first got him some interwebs shine last year. It also happens to be accompanied by a visual featuring Crank Yankers puppet version of Antwon rapping, courtesy of Noisey, which is totally worth watching after the MORE, so do that too. Oh, and grab the tape here for the free 99 and cop a ticket to his show tonight at Elbo Room.
