Earl

Odd Future's show tonight at Hammerstein Ballroom is still not sold out. You can also get tickets to the afterparty which is happening at Santos Party House with OF DJ Syd Tha Kid, Zebra Katz & Spoek Mathambo (DJ). Flyer below.

The Sub Pop-signed Spoek was just at SXSW and plays his own show at SOB's on 3/22.

Odd Future, Earl Sweatshirt included, dropped a new video today for "Oldie" off The Odd Future Tape Vol. 2, filmed by Lance Bangs (NOT LESTER as I accidentally typed and posted before) during a Terry Richardson photoshoot. The group writes "At A Photoshoot, We Said Our Verses Into A Camera While This Song Was Playing In The Background. Why Not Release it." You can watch all 10+ minutes, and a Hot 97 interview with Earl Sweatshirt (his first interview ever according to FADER), below.

It's amazing this band is still talked about.

I'd imagine it's Lance Bangs, the guy that shot that Pavement documentary. While I like OF, I don't know that they're capable of getting a promo video shot by a zombie music scribe.

"These guys are dicks, but they seem to be talented dicks."

They're not talented at all, shut up. Lame beats, zero hooks and lyrics don't shock at all.

Thankfully, the hype seems to be over since they sold out T5 quickly (3000-capacity) yet can't seem to fill up a venue only slightly bigger (3900-capacity for Hammerstein).

@442 yea because being charged with something equates to being guilty of the offense with which you were charged.

both sources lack objectivity, obviously. you're relying on the account of the woman who is charging the fucking guy with assault; i'm relying on the account of the witness standing right next to the woman when the incident occurred. if anything, i'd say my source is more objective; you have the most biased sourced available for your side of the argument.

not to mention that we are only talking about left brain, who i don't give a shit about anyway. earl, tyler, frank ocean, syd tha kid, and hodgy beats are the ones with the talent.

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 4:48 PM

Man, saying OFWGKTA isn't worth listening to because Left Brain hit some chick is like saying Wu Tang isn't worth giving a shit about because U-God was arrested for domestic abuse. Dumb argument.

Did they assault Terry Richardson? That would give them a little cred in my book.

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 4:51 PM

Nobody said they're not worth listening to for that reason. It certainly doesn't help their defense of their hateful & violent content as not being "real" though. That incident and others have exposed them badly in the last year. It's not performance, just ignorance.

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 5:07 PM

And besides, their limited talents are just stale as fuck. Syd's project tanked, Hodgy's mixtape is garbage, every recent Tyler verse sounds exactly the same...

Earl & Frank need to get off the sinking ship.

Wack names.

Holy shit these guys do dress like Erkel LOL.

Live Nation/Bowery Presents/AEG Live are so full of shit with their "sold out" and "almost sold out". Don't you all realize both are just ploys by these "promoters" to get you to buy tickets and join their mailing list so they can sell your information? I mean if a show is sold out, hey, be on the lookout for the next show. If a show is "almost sold out", better get tickets or you'll miss out. I'm always of the mindset that these shows are nowhere close to being sold out. Besides that sold out means no more presales.

4:50 - If a person thinks an artist isn't worth listening to because (the artist) is a piece of shit who hits women, he/she has a valid point.

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 7:19 PM

^ rap existed before NWA, asswipe, and those shoulders on whom NWA stood were more about the party than the gat. As such, they might just have more in common with Odd Future than NWA (at least in overall vibe). So, next time you feel compelled to start talking about shit you have no knowledge of, maybe take a chill pill, and take the cotton out of your ears and put it in your mouth.

It's so amazing what people who don't know these kids have to say. You're sitting on your couch, critiquing these kids. They have come so far from hanging out at my house to where they are today. I could not be more pleased that Earl Sweatshirt performed with them tonight. These are kids we're talking about. Look at what they have achieved. I know each and every one of them personally and love them individually for who they are. But this is the first time I am amazed by them as a group. Look what they have accomplished. From them meeting outside my home to now... it's truly amazing.

It took Radiohead more than 5 years after their first gig in NY to play Hammerstein. Odd Future plays Hammerstein within a year and couple months since their first NY show. How times have changed...

Yeah, Janel, I agree, these guys have accomplished so much. They have managed to crank out some of the most objectionable filth available today, which is a major accomplishment. I mean, if you consider it an accomplishment to say the words nigger, bitch, and faggot, hundreds of times in the same song, then these guys are really quite accomplished. In fact, they're the best.

To yet another Anonymous... directed at 9:08 a. m. Anonymous, I agree that their material is objectionable. And honestly, no one could agree with you more. I have great difficulty with their lyrics and subject matter. In my opinion, it's been marketing. I have repeatedly stated that I am not pleased with their product but proud of their success. If you don't like it, don't listen to it. Under the umbrella of Odd Future, are many acts. They don't all rap. They don't all do music. I listen to what I choose. They do an array of things like visual arts such as painting, photography.

So anyway, arm chair critic.... I suppose you are doing something very productive with your life. Carry on.
