Go “Yonkers” on Cinco De Mayo with Tyler, The Creator

This Sunday, The Knitting Factory hosts what is about to be the craziest show to hit Boise for some time.

Tyler Gregory Okonma, better known to his fans as Tyler, The Creator, will be performing with opening act Earl Sweatshirt.

Tyler, The Creator, has been talked about nonstop since his radically successful album debut “Bastard” in 2009. In fact, the album ranked #32 on Pitchfork Media’s top albums of 2010. His second album “Goblin” features the song “Yonkers” which skyrocketed the rapper to fame. He is the co- founder of the hip-hop group known as Odd Future, started Odd Future records and even has a successful clothing line. His latest album, “Wolf” was released on April 2 and has been extremely successful among his fans.

The Boise area has been buzzing with excitement over the show and many Boise State students have already purchased their tickets. Simone Lepatner, a freshman pre-med major, said, “Well, this concert is gonna be freaking awesome. Plus it’s on Cinco De Mayo so you know it’s gonna be insane.”
