Last week we ran Caroline Ryder's inside-story profile of local hip-hop Great Weird Hopes, the Odd Future gang (aka OFWGKTA).

It was a really important story that was noticed by everyone who should have noticed around the world and we think it helped the crew get the attention they deserve.

They're that good.

Last night, OFWGKTA rocked the Low End Theory night at the Airliner for their first local show after their big LA Weekly endorsement. Check out some RAW footage (shot by thekeenone) of what went down, then read Caroline's great story on the band if you haven't yet. Word to the wise–don't sleep on these guys:
