Odd Future Is Finally Coming to S.F. -- And Soon

Posted By on Mon, Jan 31, 2011 at 3:08 PM

Big news for you fans of the new, the prolific, and the emphatically profane.

Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (that's Odd Future for short), the 10-odd-member underage L.A. rap collective whose Quaalude beats and pretty much reprehensible lyrics light up the online hypo-sphere like a formaldehyde blunt, is finally playing San Francisco. In February.

Start working up your outrage now, or just go get tickets, because ... shit.

The S.F. show at Slim's on Feb. 22 is part of what looks like a small national tour in advance of the group's Coachella performance. That's kinda wow, because, in case you haven't been paying attention, previous Odd Future shows in L.A. and New York have inspired days-long digital ruminations on the merits/attractiveness/ickiness of the group's lyrics, which describe rape, kiddnapping, murder, misogyny, and many other things we generally hope most people believe are wrong ("Chop a bitch head off, then get a pleasant nut off"). But take one listen to this anarcho-rap, and you'll realize there's more to it than the lyrics. Or at least we think so.

So expect many Odd Future dissections, compliments, and dismissals during the next few months. We're mostly curious about how these young'ns will perform onstage -- especially since some past shows reportedly haven't been so awesome.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
