Trash Talk originally made their name on the back of their strict DIY ethos and their absolutely brutal live shows. Formed in 2005, they became renowned as one of the hardest working (and just generally hardest) bands in the Californian scene – they started their own collective, put out their own albums and played as many shows as they could to stave off the day jobs. Consistently a subject of interest for A & R, they fended off interest from labels until the boys from Odd Future offered a place on their own Odd Future Records. Having played a few shows with Tyler, the Creator and co a few times, they relented – with a beautiful relationship blossoming. Having released their first album on the imprint, 119 (which features guest-spots from both Tyler and Hodgy Beats),  last year, this show offers the chance to see one of the world’s most talked about bands in the flesh, with the terrifying-in-different-ways Astroid Boys and Old Skin in support.
