In two days, millions of non-Irish folks around the world will gather in inauthentic "pubs" for a day of drunken debauchery in the name of St. Patrick.
In Miami, however, Tyler, The Creator and his Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All collective will (sweaty) dick slap the Big Mango and Irish tradition in the face when they invade the Fillmore Miami Beach for the fifth stop of their current North American mini-tour.
And after Odd Future's through tossing off expletives, stage diving, and straight swagging-the-fuck-out at the house Jackie Gleason built, OFWGKTA's Syd the Kyd will be heading over to Grand Central to host the official afterparty.
What goes down at an Odd Future post-show throwdown? When the group played Tempe, Arizona, last week, Syd the Kyd "made beats spit from her laptop" and "members of Odd Future like Hodgy Beats; Tyler, The Creator; and Left Brain shot the shit with fans, sampled some libations, and even played multiple rounds on [Rocky Point Cantina's] boxing game." Swag.
In Boulder, Colorado, we imagine that "Odd Futures's resident pothead" burned some Colorado bud, maybe talked about Katy Perry's "pretty cool" record, and tossed around the idea of recording an episode of MTV Unplugged.
Needless to say, anything's possible at the Miami afterparty. We're guessing a lot of plastic, pink flamingos, bottle popping, and ass grabbing. It's gonna be wild.
