The LA youngsters that are Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All left their late night game-changing performance on Fallon Wednesday night via Chinatown bus to play a sold-out Barbary and melt faces. Most of OF was present to run through their wide catalog of self-produced jams (Google “Free Earl” for info on missing members), and the whole crowd was church-like in their unwavering response from start to finish. Obviously the standout of the night was the just-released Tyler, the Creator single “Yonkers,” which was teased a few times earlier but pulled until enough fans left the stage. In fact, stage/crowd distinction was virtually nonexistent. From the second the Creator and company pushed through the crowd to the zombie-synth opening of “Sandwitches,” the Wolf Gang included the entire Barbary.

Shortly after OF left the stage, Tyler the Creator shared his thoughts on Philadelphia in 140-or-less:

Suffice it to say we’ll be seeing the OFWGKTA dudes again. Bring your A-game, 215. These dudes slam.

Sidenote: Tyler, the Creator and Hodgy Beats from Odd Future played Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night. That video is all the way at the bottom of the post.
