Earl Sweatshirt Brings Out Tyler The Creator, Domo Genesis, Jasper Dolphin and Taco

Earl Sweatshirt’s solo tour stopped at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom Monday evening and the majority under aged crowd packed out the venue chanting for Odd Future’s arrival. As the start of the show time came and passed, rumors began milling around that the hold up was due to a surprise appearance by Odd Future’s front man Tyler, The Creator.

At about 10:30, Taco, the charismatic DJ, took the stage to hype up the already crazed crowd with Kendrick Lamar, Action Bronson and Drake. After several intense mosh pit sessions, Earl blazed the stage and performed every song from his discography. Domo Genesis, also in the building, joined him for “Knight” and “Wave Caps.” Early on in his set, Earl performed some of his darker and deeper records like “Sunday” and “Hive,” which were received incredibly despite the intensely energized crowd.

Tyler rushed the stage to perform his verses on “Sasquatch” and “Whoa” and together they were rock stars, showcasing such an authentic energy that was exhilarating for everyone in the audience. Tyler jumped on every surface possible, and Taco and Jasper Dolphin grabbed mics for the hilarious “Bitch Suck Dick.” Although Earl undeniably killed it, he was no match for Tyler’s comic dance moves consisting of a blend of twerking, two stepping and rock star staples.

Earl proclaimed, “this would really be the last song, because he only made like 20.” But of course, after the crew left the stage and an Odd Future chant manifested, Doms, Tyler, Earl, Jasper and Taco all returned for the grand finale featuring Tyler’s “Tamale.” Tyler urged the crowd to remain composed until the beat dropped and when that beat did in fact drop, it was pure mayhem in the best way possible.
