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.

Low End Theory announces the end of an era, books 10 final shows

Los Angeles’ premiere party-starter and event collective Low End Theory has announced the final shows in its decade-plus run.

The weekly DJ nights, co-founded by Alpha Pup boss Daddy Kev, DJ Boring, and The Gaslamp Killer in 2006, had an enormous impact on hip-hop and bass music in the states. The party, which ran every Wednesday night at The Airliner in L.A., went on to launch the careers of numerous notable acts, whose regulars over the years included Flying Lotus, The Glitch Mob, Daedelus, and Nosaj Thing. Special guests over the years have included the likes of Thom Yorke, Erykah Badu, and James Blake.

The founders have explained that the decision to cancel the event did not come with its challenges.

“There are several factors affecting this decision,” they announced via Facebook. “Family obligations. Work demands. Life. The general consensus amongst the residents is that we have overstayed our welcome, and our greatest hope now is that the final ten weeks of Low End Theory can serve as a time for the beat community to set aside our differences, come together, and hopefully remember what made Low End Theory a special place to begin with: the music.”

The final 10 Low End Theory events run through August 8.
