Tyler, The Creator reunites Odd Future at Low End Theory’s final installment, and drops a new music video with A$AP RockyTyler The Creator

Low End Theory unplugged its sound system for the final time with a packed house on Wednesday, August 8. The bittersweet event brought droves of avid supporters for the send off, and even featured an Odd Future reunion. The closing of LA’s beloved club night went out with a bang, with Tyler, the Creator set to headline. In a twist of sorts, a mini-reunion ensued with Earl Sweatshirt, Syd, Hodgy Beats, and more. The group’s former factotum went on to mention The Airliner, where the beloved experimental hip-hop and electronic club night took place every Wednesday for over a decade, was in fact where Odd Future had their first show.

Attendees of the sold out event had a chance to hear Wolf Haley’s version of Gucci Mane‘s “Lemonade,” and “Orange Juice.” Biz Markie was there to capture the visuals.

Oh, and A$AP Rocky showed up too. Low End’s send off was quite the affair. Tyler and Rocky’s club appearance was closely followed by a new drop from the two rappers in the new clip for “See You Again” from 2017’s Flower Boy. Stirring anticipation for a collaborative project between the A$AP Mob and Odd Future frontmen is starting to build, and hopefully it materializes soon.

Check out Tyler, The Creator’s first ever NPR Tiny Desk concert

2017 was arguably Tyler, the Creator’s biggest year yet. The OFWGKTA founder released his fourth studio album Flower Boy back in July to widespread critical acclaim. It saw Tyler hit lyrical stride at the peak of his career through a journey of introspective, self defining tracks.

Tyler, the Creator’s debut Tiny Desk performance was the first time NPR has held a nighttime performance, at the special request of Tyler’s team to light the room themselves.

Tyler and his bandmates perform bathed in a saturation of rich, self lit colors, “What’s your name?” Tyler asks a woman in the crowd. “Nana” she replies. Tyler then motions to his backing choir to sing along, “Nana in this motherfucker” they sing. It’s quite silly, but Tyler and his backing group sing with an impassioned fervor.

The group plays “Boredom,” “See you Again,” and “Glitter” across the twenty minute concert, all songs from Flower Boy. Tyler’s bandmates balance his nonchalant frontman presence with their earnest vocal hymns. Even when he’s joking, Tyler, the Creator seems to hit a soft spot in his audience.
