Odd Future 2011 Fall Tour Dates

Odd Future is touring the North America this fall. The GolfWang tour is ALL-AGES and features no opening acts. There will be an opening set by OFWGKTA’s DJ Syd the Kyd. But other than that…no random dudes who know the promoter to drain away the energy.
Odd Future’s Tyler the Creator has been nominated for a 2 VMA’s. You can vote for Tyler here and here.
If you want to make yourself more excited about this tour then peep Pitchfork’s and OkayPlayer’s reviews of MellowHype’s Blackenedwhite.
Fan on-sale Wed (8/3) + general on-sale Fri (8/5)/ Sat (8/6) for show tickets.

It appears that if you live in Columbus, Ohio and you want to see duh WolfGang then you will have to head to Cincinnati or the D. If you go to the Show At Bogarts in the Nati then check out the mural my friends and I did a few year ago on the side of the venue.

After the jump a watch a video of “Sandwitches” live in Los Angeles that Lance Bangs shot while compiling footage for Odd Future’s Adult Swim Pilot..

Odd Future’s MellowHype Sets July 12th Release on Fat Possum Records

Odd Future’s HodgyBeats & Left Brain aka MellowHype and Fat Possum Records are dropping the retail version of Blackenedwhite on July 12th.

The music that was originally released on OFWGKTA’s tumbler in late 2010 has been remastered, reworked. Songs have been added. Videos have been made. And look at the awesome cover.

MellowHype was on National television with Bass Drum of Death a few months ago.

And of course Hodgy is the kid on Sandwitches that says the evilest shit. Again look at that cover. Makes me want to get a fireplace and a red robe. I want a lady to crotchet that cover to hang over my fireplace and apply oils to my stomach. I might shave my head to look like Anton Levay or Boyd Rice.

I will prolly just cop it on wax and cross my legs while sipping tea in reality.

This will be the last Odd Future’s release on an imprint that isn’t Odd Future Records.

If you live in on the West Coast:

Bass Drum of Death will back Odd Future’s MellowHype tonight on Fuel TV at 11pm EST/10pm CST. This above video is of Bass Drum of Death’s performance on the same show last night. Bass Drum of Death is dropping GB City on Fat Possum Records, April 12th. They are Fat Possum’s first two-piece since the Black Keys.

Bass Drum of Death Tour Dates after the jump

MellowHype is Hodgy Beats and Left Brain and on Fat Possum as well. So I guess they would also be Fat Possum’s first two-piece since the Black Keys.

You prolly remember Hodgy from that infamous OFWGKTA Jimmy Fallon performance. MellowHype will be performing “64″ from BlackenedWhite, which will be remastered, remixed, and feature bonus material that wasn’t on the the original version released on Halloween 2010. Continue reading
