ODD FUTURE vs. The Coachella Valley
on Wednesday, June 15th, at the Indio Performing Arts Center – ALL AGES.
You already know!…..
Odd Future is one of the most exciting musical acts to not just come into the music industry… but also into the Coachella Valley (for the second time around, Coachella being their first). And we are pretty f*ing stoked/honored to have them.
And just in case, on the super slight chance that you don’t know who Odd Future is, here is a pretty good interview they did with Esquire Magazine:
” What the fk is Odd Future? A rap group made up of ten or so skateboard rats from L.A., ages 16 through 19(ish). “Odd Future” is short for “Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All,” which usually gets abbreviated as “OFWGKTA.”
Who the fk are Odd Future? The leader of the group is a 19 year-old named Tyler, or Tyler The Creator. The second-most prominent of the group is a rapper named Hodgy Beats. The rest of the group splinter off into sub-groups. The youngest member is Earl Sweatshirt, who was recently sent away to boarding school by his parents.
What the fk is the big deal about Odd Future? Imagine the most belligerent, psychotic, damaged, and mischievous teenagers you’ve never wanted to meet. Pair them with ounces of charisma, an SAT-ready vocabulary, and rap records. You end up with their mixtapes, which have involved raps about drugs, sex, rape, anarchy, Freudian damage, epic self-consciousness, and a purview of the world mostly
involving nihilism, anarchy, and obscenities as vocally nutritious content. Sample hook from a new song debuted Tuesday night: “Kill people, burn sht, fk school!” They make Eminem sound about as violent as Wolf Blitzer. They are intent on terrifying every parent and Republican in America. And they just might.”

Odd Future (OFWGKTA)
Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, a ten-member cult rap collective from L.A., bring to mind a younger, crazier Wu-Tang Clan — if the Clan had skateboarded and rhymed about drugs and gore instead of chess and kung-fu. Ranging from the ages of 16 to 20, core members Tyler, the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Mike G, Left Brain, and Hodgy Beats started making music along with collaborators Taco, Matt Martians, Domo Genesis, Syd, and Jasper the Dolphin in 2007. The crew’s crude sense of humor and confrontational subject matter earned them a huge underground following, and put them on “top artists to watch” lists. Throughout 2010, Tyler, Earl, Mike G, and MellowHype (Hodgy and Left Brain) released mixtapes individually as free downloads, but as of 2011, no concrete plans were yet made for a definitive full-length OFWGKTA album
