Frank Ocean & friends @ 285 Kent
Trash Talk
Trash Talk

After Frank Ocean played Terminal 5 and Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt played Best Buy Theater, Frank, Tyler, Earl, and most of the rest of the Odd Future crew that was in town (no Mike G or Syd The Kid), made their way over to 285 Kent where the free Brooklynvegan-presented afterparty was happening with an advertised set by Trash Talk (who record for Odd Future Records) and DJ Leftbrain (of Odd Future). Doors were scheduled to open at midnight, By then there were already more than capacity on line to get in. Naturally, everyone did not get in, and some actually stayed on line outside, still hoping while listening through the door until the end of the show.

As advertised/hinted, there were special guests who turned out to be all of Odd Future (even Frank Ocean). The show started with about an hour-long DJ set where the members of Odd Future were on stage dancing around, singing along to whatever songs were playing and hyping the crowd who started to get crazy, but not as crazy as when Trash Talk actually took the stage. It was a trip to watch Frank Ocean having fun on the 285 Kent stage with his friends, after just having seen him command a sold out crowd at Terminal 5. Not to mention Tyler and Earl goofing around, after also just having played a headlining show at the sold out Best Buy Theater. Tyler, Earl and others then stayed on stage for Trash Talk as the band played a signature set that includes lots of pit action and people jumping off speakers. Odd Future didn't technically perform a live set at 285 Kent, but Tyler, as he has done in the past, took over vocals for "Radicals," which you can watch a video of below. Said video also includes footage of Trash Talk playing their song, "Awake."

sweaty Trash Talk
Trash Talk

For Trash Talk's last song, they asked every single person in the room to run out of the venue on to the street to join with the people who couldn't get in. That didn't work out so well though, as the security at the door was already overwhelmed and chaos and a fight quickly ensued outside as Todd P and the rest of the 285 Kent crew tried to calm the masses.

Among those in the crowd were Odd Future associate Lucas, members of Real Estate (who Trash Talk shouted out), Neon Indian, and Cults. Vampire Weekend and John Legend were spotted earlier in the night at Frank Ocean (where Odd Future and Trash Talk also was), and I saw Action Bronson, Despot, and Chavez guitarist Matt Sweeney all hanging out outside the Odd Future Best Buy Theater show. All in all, an eventful night for the NYC music scene thanks to the Odd Future crew coming to town.

We have even more pictures coming, but here's one set. More of them, with the video of Tyler joining Trash Talk, below...

Fuck the guy in the seventh pic. All he did all night was try to pick fights. Trash Talk used to be a legit power violence type hardcore band, but it's hard to take them seriously know. Almost the entire crowd were hipsters or there because odd future was there. The person in front of me was asking who Trash Talk were and said he thought he had them mistaken with Girl Talk.

what a fucking nut swinging, dick sucking write up that was, what the fuck happened to this site, it's like Perez Hilton. OMG FRANK OCEAN WAS THERE???? That's so crazy that he would come to a show where all of his friends are already hanging out at! What a celebrity!

Trash Talk plays shitty hardcore. Odd Future plays shitty hip hop. This wasnt an eventful night for music in NYC. It was an indicator of what to do WRONG.

Come to Incendiary tonight at the Acheron for a real hardcore show.

The only reason to go anywhere near this show would be to start a fight. If that is not obvious to you, you are not paying attention.

@4:29PM

I usually don't agree with many comments that are left on this blog, but this one nails it right on the head. People always throw the "crowd was full of stupid douche bag hipsters" line on a lot of the shows that get covered on here, but this one is fucking legit. I didn't like the vibe of this show at all. It was annoying being in a hipster dominated crowd along with a bunch of ridiculous teenage gangbangers.

I used to really dig Trash Talk despite all the hate they get but like this person said, its really hard to take them seriously now. Guess the joke was on me for bothering to go to this shit.

Posted by Anonymous | July 27, 2012 7:38 PM

Hipsters are like adolescent snakes. They don't understand yet how to regulate the poison, so their lack of life experience and foolishness usually adds up to an experience that is flush full of epic suckage.

members of REAL ESTATE? Jesus fucking christ does ANYONE on this planet have any integrity anymore? In anyone in indie rock not a fucking wigger now?

Reality check to all the racists. Whether you like it or not, you have no choice but to deal with people of all races if you choose to live in this city. Accept it (and stop talking anonymous shit over the internet) or move to a rural shack in Idaho. Your choice. I hope you choose Idaho.

MAN I WISH I COULD HAVE BEEN THERE

Posted by THE_NUGE | July 27, 2012 10:53 PM

Just curious....let's rate Trash Talk as an American hardcore band.

early Bad Brains, midwest hardcore like Negative Approach and Necros, and early Cali stuff like Angry Samoans, Circle Jerks and pre-Henry Black Flag is a 10

relevant NYHC, D.C. (other than BB) and Boston Hardcore is an 8

New Jack shit like Ceremony is a 4

Rancid and Green Day are a 1

Your average Warped Tour band is a 0

Discuss.

For 7:26, flashback to 1987 (because I was there) ....

LULZ 11:27 trying to lead a discussion while grouping Green Day as hardcore and grading Fugazi as an 8/10 = most certainly was in fact born yesterday.

Posted by Anonymous | July 27, 2012 11:41 PM

I know Ceremony gets alot of shit (just as much as Trash Talk), but at least theyve progressed on their own terms, career-wise and musically. Trash Talk is riding the Odd Future dick, and it couldnt be the furthest thing from punk. Ceremony can release a classical record and be more punk than Trash Talk.

how much does BV get paid to write a post like this?

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2012 1:55 AM

this show can only be considered "punk rock" if Michael Richards had opened up with his comedy act, and Great White closed with their trademark performance art set.

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2012 2:53 AM

11:41 - Actually, you must have been born yesterday son. If classic D.C. hardcore to you means Fugazi (whom I never mentioned once in my post), that just shows you have no knowledge of the genre. To people who do, classic D.C. hardcore means bands like Minor Threat, S.O.D., Void, The Faith and Government Issue. Also, there's a reason Green Day was a 1...that was the whole point. Oh...and please stop using the term "LULZ." It also gives away your immaturity.

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2012 9:58 AM

^I meant S.O.A. (State Of Alert w/ pre-Black Flag Henry)...not S.O.D.

To answer your Q, 11:27, on the "hardcore" scale they rate somewhere between Sum 41 and Friends.

LULZ LULZ It took 9:58/10:01 a whole 3 minutes (re-reading his own post, like a the narcissist he is) to correct his OWN post that comes from a purported "person who does (has knowledge of the DC hardcore genre)". LULZ sorry gramps - YOU LOSE! :-P Come back and play again tomorrow. That nasty skank with the neck tat will show you off the stage. B'BYE LULZ LULZ LULZ

"Self-absorption was once solely the domain of the intellectual and artistic elite — Einstein and Picasso, for instance — but has now filtered down to those who don’t even have a reason to be self-absorbed. Hell, with the seeming nonexistence of rational thought, pragmatism, emotional maturity, or any sense of the world outside, I’m not even convinced there is a self to be absorbed in."

Looks like 11:27/9:58 has made friends elsewhere too! This passage describes him pretty accurately.

11:41/11:48 - Uhm...who is the narcissist dude? Here you are searching the internet for quotes to post in between your proud outbursts of "LULZ" when all I was trying to do was have a discussion about music without some jerk incorrectly asserting Fugazi into the mix. Go back to sleep brah.
