The much-blogged-about outfit Odd Future, a.k.a. OFWGKTA, its bringing its live show to the East Coast this May, as announced today via official Tumblr. The collective’s NYC stop will be at Highline Ballroom on Friday, May 13 (appropriate); tickets went on sale earlier today and are already sold out. The mind begins to wander when thinking of what people will do in order to score entry to the show (non-money-exchange division). Eat a roach? Go up to Tyler and call his music “horrorcore”?
Last time the intensely discussed group was in New York, they dissed bloggers at Santos Party House; the next night they caused Mos Def to freak out while they shared the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon stage. Group leader Tyler, the Creator’s second album (titled Goblin) is dropping on May 10, three days before the NYC show. If “Yonkers” is any indication, it should be a doozy–not to mention a record that garners a lot of press.
