Five Outrageous Odd Future Moments From SXSW
Love them or hate them, the talk of SXSW was Odd Future. The Cali collective ripped through Austin, TX and had the entire city buzzing about each and every performance. But we decided to narrow down five of OFWGKTA’s most outrageous moments at South By Southwest.
5) mtvU Woodie Awards Performance
Gnomes, giant chickens, midgets, stage diving, security! Odd Future’s mtvU Woodie Awards performance was full of energy and something that you would likely see if you were taking acid.
4) Nardwuar Tames Odd Future
Anybody that has attempted to interview Odd Future knows that there’s nothing easy about talking to Tyler and the crew…unless you are Nardwuar. The eccentric Canadian managed to tame the wild beast with gifts that nearly had OFWGKTA looking like normal people.
3) Diddy Introduces Odd Future, Tyler Gets Nailed In The Face With A Can Of Mountain Dew
With Diddy present, Odd Future looks to show out. That is, until Tyler gets creamed with a full can of Mountain Dew to the face at the :40 mark. Rather than cry about it, the Odd Future frontman berates the crowd and dares the culprit to “Man the f*ck up!” Then he continues performing.
2) Tyler Jumps Off Roof, Breaks Kids Nose…And He Loves It
The stage performance of Odd Future is one to behold. But if you’re not one for stage diving, bottles of water being launched at you and mosh pits, then you probably want to stay far, far away from an OFWGKTA show. At SXSW, Tyler dove off of the top of the speaker into the crowd, and apparently broke some kids nose. Word is that the kid “took it like a G” and wasn’t upset at all. That’s love right there.
1) Dissing Billboard Magazine At Their Own Show
How gangster (or insane) do you have to be to diss the magazine whose cover you’re on at their own damn showcase? That’s exactly what Tyler did at the Billboard showcase where fans paid $20 to see the crew perform live. Rather than put together yet another all out set, Odd Future ran through three songs, dissed the fans and then took a huge dump on Billboard before dropping the mic and waltzing off stage.
