ODD FUTURE - Big Day Out sideshows announced

 

ODD FUTURE


SYDNEY & MELBOURNE BIG DAY OUT SIDE SHOWS ANNOUNCED!

 

Alternative hip-hop has found its strongest voice in a very long time. This sensation rolls like an avalanche through the web’s many music blogs with concert footage of some young hip hoppers who clearly take the genre all the way in a punk direction.

 

This phenomenon is called OFWGKTA - Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All or simply Odd Future. Tyler, The Creator is the centre of the wolf pack and around him is a whole formation of young, talented rappers. Formed in 2007, with ages between 17 and 25, they’ve already released numerous mixtapes and studio albums, all for free at the band’s website.

 

The crew’s crude sense of humor and confrontational subject matter earned them a huge underground following and put them on “top artists to watch” lists. Odd Future have gone from underground sensations to one the hottest new acts in the world in just a few months with Tyler, The Creator's "Best New Artist" win at the 2011 Video Music Awards and his Yonkers video being viewed more than 30 million times. The group’s energy, uncompromising lyrics and raw talent have ensured they’ve shrugged off the initial "Internet hype" labeling.

 

Their ethos is well-defined - either you're in or out; for Odd Future or against it.  And in that categorical way, it makes them the perfect rap crew for our time.

 

These are the ONLY Australian shows Odd Future outside of the Big Day Out 2012 dates.

 

Tickets go on sale for all dates at 12.00pm local time on Monday 28 November, 2011.
