Die Antwoord, Gutwrench, Rank/Xerox, Free SF MOMA Admission and More

You have two major choices this weekend — high art or low art. There's free museum admission and frolicking dancers. Or grimy South African rap and San Francisco crust punk. Whatever you choose, take comfort in knowing it was cheap. Here's our roundup of 10 things to do this weekend for less than a pack of smokes (for now, anyway):

Die Antwoord @ Amoeba (Fri.)
This is precisely the kind of show that people have come to expect of our dear Amoeba Records. Newsworthy band (Die Antwoord) in town for a much bigger show (Treasure Island Festival) playing a totally free set for an intimate crowd. Die Antwoord (meaning “The Answer” in Afrikaans) is an eye-popping and improbable South African crew that mixes rave-raps with elements of Zef culture — slang for modern and trashy. The crazy-haircut-sporting, oddball hip-hop group consists of rappers Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er with beats by DJ Hi-Tek. (Free, 6 p.m.)

Threshold Morphologies: Recent Works by Greg Zifcak @ Kitsch Gallery (Fri.)
San Francisco sound and video artist Greg Zifcak creates multimedia pieces using analog video synthesis techniques through oscillation, interference and feedback. It's basically a constantly shifting screen with psychedelic visuals and sounds that will get your heart thumping. If you want to know what that looks and sounds like, visit Kitsch Gallery tonight for a free demonstration. (Free, 6-9 p.m.)
