Anyone else think it's weird they're gonna be in the Sahara?
Have those of you concerned about the douchey bros at Skrillex considered
in this scenario?
Hey, if these brosephs don't want emo-dub-broz messing up Diet Wu-Tang™ for them, then who's to blame them?
"God I can't believe we have to stand through these young aggro bros moshing to this high pitched wompy music so that we can get a good spot to aggressively mosh to cacophonous rap music over backtracks. Outraged."
At first glance i thought Sahara was brilliant but the more i think about it all the e-tards arent gonna enjoy getting moshed and stage dived on multiple times
"america is great, a ***** is free to make as much money as a hoe wants to work for him" Pimp
Sahara is the only place to put them. Even if it is weird, it makes sense.

Turn up the volume and zone out.
Skrillex fan base and OFWGKTA fan base seems identical to me.
2013 = Coverchella
2011 = Perfectchella
No. Not at all.
Skrillex is shit.
Skrillex looks like E.T.'s illegitimate child with the closeted homosexual boy that drove him around in a bicycle basket all fucking day:
Tyler and the Gang bring something new to the Table ... that is Poster #1214.
Now that it is in the Sahara I reaaaly hope Frank Ocean plays at least these 3 songs...
There Will Be Tears
Though I would love to hear Lovecrimes, Nature Feels, We All Try and Songs for Women
Sahara is fucking genius. There's no conflicts I'm super crushed about missing for this, and it's the one place during the middle of the day that a) the entire place can go completely fucking crazy and b) is big enough there will be places to watch the madness from afar hopefully if that's more your thing.
Strange side effect of guaranteeing I'm seeing Skrillex which I never saw happening, but also oddly guarantees that my friends who are gonna be there for Skrillex are gonna have some OF shoved down their throats afterwards. "Oh we're gonna wanna stick around for A-trak next anyway, don't worry you'll love it! Watch out for elbows!"
This ***** Jasper...
Will say though they did an excellent job overall. But to our point about hip-hop conflicts. It would have been easily avoided if they just switched OFWGKTA with Skrillex who is directly beneath them. But, hey, I know that making a schedule like this is extremely difficult, and that would have pissed someone off too if they had made that change, not sure who, but someone.
GolfWang, would you be down to plan a meet-up for this set?
it would be really dope to swag the fuck out of the pit with another dedicated OF fan like yourself
9/22 The Mekons @ Pappy & Harriet's
Yeah, I'm down. Front of the Sahara soundboard?
and just in case you can't find me, it's probably because I'm drunk and/or trying to wrangle my many absent-minded friends into one location. I've never gone to an OF show without being completely sober, but I plan on drinking many beers in order to make the last 20 or so minutes of Skrillex's set bearable.
oh and one more thing...
