After riotous performances on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and MTVu’s Woodie Award show, few expected Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All’s SXSW debut to go over quietly. But no one expected the controversy the California collective caused in their three days of performances.
During the group’s Friday performance at the Thrasher Party, Tyler, the Creator accidentally broke a fan’s nose while stage diving off the speaker “French!”. According to OFWGKTA’s website, however, the situation ended in accord and the fan “took it like a fucking g.” A video of the stage dive can be seen below.
The following night at their Fader Fort performance, during which Diddy declared them and Lil B “the future of the music industry,” a concert goer hit Tyler in the face with a bottle of Mountain Dew while performing “Sandwitches.” Although the incident didn’t keep OFWGKTA from finishing their set, they did stop the song briefly to tell the perpetrator to “man the fuck up.”
Finally, the crew stormed off stage during their Billboard Showcase set at Buffalo Billiards, following a number of technical difficulties with the microphones. According to ContactMusic.com, Odd Future made it only three songs into their set after numerous restarts before dropping their mics and leaving the stage.
Tyler also took to Twitter to vent his frustrations with the performance.
Billboard Is Cool. That Show Was Stupid. Thanks To The Fans And Niggas That Was There In The Front. Wasn’t Billboards Fault, FUCK THAT CLUB
