Frank Ocean steps out of the warm womb of Odd Future for first solo dates

Frank Ocean steps out of the warm womb of Odd Future for first solo dates

Rap collective Odd Future inspire a lot of vigorous debate, but everyone can agree on one thing: Frank Ocean is probably the group’s suavest member. Unless there’s something about that Taco guy that I don’t know, Frank Ocean’s smooth, self-loathing R&B stands out a bit from the rest of those Odd Future kids. Yet, he clearly feels pretty comfortable with them, as he hasn’t stepped out of their sticky, angry womb for any solo shows. Consider him stepping out now: Frank Ocean has a trio of solo dates scheduled for November.

New Orleans! New York! Los Angeles! If you hate those cities, you will not end up seeing Frank Ocean by himself. At least, that’s how it seems for now. Ocean plans on announcing further dates in the future, but that information does not exist yet. Only Frank Ocean and those that can occupy Frank Ocean’s brain know that information. Please stop occupying his brain, though, as that is very rude.

Odd Future will also be going on a lot more than three dates over the next couple of months. Mr. Ocean may or may not show up at these dates, but he has not confirmed anything. That said, there are particular dates Ocean will definitely not be at, unless he can, say, be in New York and Austin at the same time. If he can, he should not, because that is also very rude.
