The night began with Frank Ocean as he crooned to thousands of adoring fans inside a sold-out Terminal 5. Though they didn't take the stage with him, the rest of his Odd Future family was in the building to show their support.
The next show of the night was to feature Earl Sweatshirt and Tyler, the Creator but quickly became a gathering of the entire collective, with Hodgy Beats and others joining Earl and Tyler onstage.
Frank Ocean even rushed out of his show to make it over to the Best Buy Theater to join his friend Tyler, the Creator and the rest of the Odd Future collective onstage.
Shortly after midnight, a white van pulled up to 285 Kent in Brooklyn, where a line of impatiently waiting fans wrapped halfway around the block. Out jumped the members of Odd Future and their recently signed labelmates Trash Talk, who were scheduled perform that evening. Once inside, it was clear that this wouldn't just be a normal Trash Talk show.
The small space of 285 Kent didn't allow much hiding space for the night's biggest stars. Frank Ocean stuck to the back of the stage so as not to get crushed by the masses swarming in front.
Before the band actually played, Odd Future's Left Brain jumped into the DJ booth and got the crowd moving. The rest of the group, including Earl Sweatshirt, started a full-blown dance party onstage.
Before long, Trash Talk took the stage with pounding drums, searing guitars and screaming vocals. The crowd immediately jumped into a frenzy of stage dives and mosh pits.
The rest of the guys weren't going to sit idly while their friends and fans thrashed about onstage and on the floor. Tyler, the Creator got creative and jumped from a speaker stack to a pipe on the ceiling, where he hung out for awhile before dropping into the crowd that was eager to catch him.
The crowd and band quickly became one as Trash Talk singer Lee Spielman launched himself into the pulsating sea of fans.
By the end of the Kent show, everyone in attendance was either soaking wet, exhausted or wearing much less than they came in with. For most, it was a combination of all three.
