Odd Future: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Feb 16 2011

Odd Future is finally coming back to S.F. The 10-plus members of this don't-give-a-fuck L.A. collective, all of whom are under 21, have played in S.F. before, although not since gaining national attention for their edgy, thrown-together sound. But it's the blunt, gleefully distasteful references to skateboarding, weed, rape, random violence, and Steve Harvey (whom they hate) that have infuriated the group's critics, unified its defenders, and raised its profile. Led by the dark rhymes and forward-looking beats of the charismatic and seemingly insane Tyler the Creator, expect Odd Future's S.F. show to be nothing short of madness, a night where the party in the crowd will be just as interesting as what's happening onstage. Unfortunately, the crew's lyrical ace, Earl Sweatshirt, is still missing — he's rumored to be in a disciplinary boot camp — but Left Brain, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, Mike G, and the rest should all be there. If you need an introduction to Odd Future, check out its collective mixtape, Radical.

  • 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.'"
