Fresh off of winning the MTV VMA for Best New Artist, Tyler The Creator is leading his hip hop collective known as Odd Future/Wolf Gang/OFWGKTA/Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All into the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver for a highly anticipated all-ages show. With lyrical content I would not want my mom to know I listen to, the group of the aforementioned Tyler The Creator, Hodgy Beats, Left Brain, Earl Sweatshirt, Frank Ocean, Domo Genesis, Mike G, Syd Tha Kyd, Matt Martians, Jasper Dolphin and Taco (for some reason I feel like a member or two may not be on stage) are embarking on the Gang Wolf Tour that is hitting 27 cities in North America to end off a very successful 2011 for the group.
How successful was their 2011 you ask? Well Tyler The Creator won the VMA for Best New Artist, they signed to Sony Music, their collective mix tape Radical continued to generate buzz online after its 2010 release, they had a sketch comedy show green lit for Adult Swim AND I really like them. All that factored into one whirlwind year makes for large crowds at their concerts. The energy they have on stage leads to many an amp, microphone and even stage piece being broken.
How will things play out on the legendary Vogue Theatre stage? Check back soon for my review and photos from Mr. Jamie Taylor
