Odd Future Tonight

Rap Genius Tyler, the Creator Makes Appearance in 'Burque Tonight!

By Reina Poppy [ Mon Jun 1 2015 11:10 AM ]

Tyler, the Creator, rapper, Supreme Clothing sponsor, skater, and oft-called leader of the multi-artist collaboration Odd Future Wolf Gang (OFWGKTA), makes a stop at Albuquerque's Sunshine Theater this evening, June 1st.

For the uninitiated, most of Tyler's songs start out with a fire intro that would likely offend your friendly old neighbors and make you want to rage dance around your house; then come fast paced rap verses leading into a chorus that usually features another well known artist. “Shocking” is a term often used to describe Tyler's subject matter, often quickly followed by paradoxical descriptors like “smart”. One local fan says "Tyler is an interesting individual, who hides his problems deep within his music for his fans to uncover." Tyler's music emerges from his everyday life —on his 3rd album Bastard, for example, he recorded a session with his therapist and made it into a track. If Tyler is a scion of today's urban youth culture with an extremely large fan base, the rapper has an equal number of critics who call him disrespectful, rude, and crude. In fact he probably has an equal amount of critics entirely due to his use of the term “faggot” alone (Tyler has repeatedly said in interviews that he has no hatred for gays). In response to his detractors, Tyler says "I'm not an asshole, I just don't give a fuck a lot." Works for me.

During this 2015-2016 tour Tyler, the Creator will be playing 44 concerts all over the United States. Tonight's crowd at the Sunshine should likely expect to hear much of his newest album, Cherry Bomb, in addition to his older and most popular tracks like "Domo23", "Tamale", and "Yonkers". Don't miss a golden opportunity to see this cutting edge hip-hop/rap artist in Albuquerque. With him will be special guest Taco, who is known to warm the crowd up while everyone awkwardly dances to trap music (picture lots of white kids 'dancing' to Waka Flocka Flame.) Doors open at 7pm and admission is 27.50. Be there.
