Embrace Your Odd Future Tonight at the Palladium.
You're in the middle of a deadly high-speed car chase going down on 75. Specifically, you're a on motorcycle — the same motorcycle that you and your grandfather worked on when you were just a child, right before he passed away. This bike has never failed you yet, and this certainly isn't the time for it to give up on you.
You swerve between cars, deftly avoiding the bumper of each vehicle as you pass by. The police are still in hot pursuit, eager to send you straight to prison. Suddenly, a sea of red lights sprawls out before you.
There's a traffic jam ahead. Your pursuers grin. They are certain you will be in their hands soon.
You speed into the side lane. You quickly discover the reason for the slowed traffic: There's an overturned vehicle up ahead in the very same, otherwise unoccupied side lane you're racing down. You grit your teeth and brace yourself.
Just before reaching the flipped car, you bump your motorcycle to the ground to force a jump. In an instant, you find yourself cruising atop the underbelly of the vehicle. You're riding it like a ramp — much to the shock of the police who have braked behind you.
As you reach the front of the vehicle, your bike shoots off into the air. Time stands still in this moment. Everyone watches for what will happen. Even you find yourself locked into this freeze in time, unsure of what you were really doing in the first place.
Wait. That's right. You were just trying to make it to the Odd Future show. You didn't want to be late.
“I just hope tickets are still available,” you ponder mid-air.

Holiday Presence at Kettle Art

If you wanna dance, if you wanna win… well, just go to this tonight.
Odd Future at Palladium Ballroom
As it turns out, “OFWGKTA” is not a poor mnemonic device used by children to learn the metric system. Instead, it's the abbreviation for the hip-hop collective best known as Odd Future, who will perform their songs and no doubt get somewhat crazy at the Palladium tonight. Doors are at 8 p.m.
