With your anemic attention span fed on endless helpings of Adult Swim, Count Chocula, and hot chronic, maybe a night of partying alongside the Brooklyn rap punks of Ninjasonik doesn't sound all that exciting.
With DJs T.K.O., Mike Deuce, and Jessica Who?, plus a live skate demo. 11 p.m. Saturday, September 25, at Grand Central, 697 N. Miami Ave., Miami; grandcentralmiami.com. Tickets cost $10 in advance from wantickets.com. Ages 18 and up.
Well, bro, you need to get off that jaded hipster ish because these three cross-genre scientists are the real deal. Whether you're talking singles such as "Ha Ha Ha," "Somebody Gon Get Pregnant," or "Internet Bitch," Jah-Jah, Telli, and Roofeeo keep it street while still weirding out. They throw down deep, druggy beats. They chop up samples with a samurai sword. They spit lazy, crazy rhymes like there's something stuck in their teeth.
Basically, the members of the Ninjasonik crew live by a code of everything goes — grabbing liberally from, as their own hype says, "Slick Rick and the Sex Pistols" to pound out a pure and vicious pop-rap-punk mashup of awesomely uneven proportions. It's a throwback thing. It's an evolved experiment. It's all about dumb fun and civil disobedience.
