You may recall how excited I was the very first time Odd Future made their way to the East Coast for what was both then and now so obviously a historical performance. I was only following along on twitter (virtually every critic and music source I follow out of NYC was twittering out of control) but it was one of those shows where you just knew history was going down. And look where we are now: Tyler’s at over 100k followers (from 2000 when I first caught on), the OF clique is all up on MTV, and they’ve kinda sorta become a bona fide North American pop culture sensation.
But if you missed the first part of their escalation to success, don’t fret because we’re about to witness another level of it. IN DA FLESH! ODD FUTURE has announced their very first East Coast tour, and on it is their first appearance in Canada, for TORONTO ON MAY 15th AT THE MOD CLUB. Just make sure you wear a face mask and the appropriate protective gear. You never know when one of them may fly from the ceiling, perhaps landing foot first on your nose (depending on your degree of delusional fandom, you may even consider this swag).
