This past weekend the Los Angeles Coliseum was completely taken over by Golf Wang as the Odd Future Carnival came to town. Tons of people attended the all-day fest, and a huge line wrapped around the outside of the Coliseum as young fans waited for a chance to see their heroes. Many in attendance were decked out in Odd Future gear from hats and backpacks to wild button up shirts and colorful socks.
Flying Lotus performed, and he was as precise and marvelous as ever. An excited Tyler took the stage as evening broke and rapped to an adoring mass of fans, but even the ringmaster himself seemed surprised by Kanye West’s surprise appearance which at first seemed to be a joke. Lo and behold, Yeesus was there in the flesh which got Tyler as excited as everyone else in the building. L.A. Taco’s Desilu was there to document the scene. View the gallery below for more…

On Sunday night, LA Taco plunked down at Hollywood Forever cemetery to watch the pilot episode and ultimate conclusion of Breaking Bad. Hosted by Aaron Paul, the event was a fundraiser with Bushmills for The Kind Campaign against childhood bullying. Before the show started, Paul emerged from a smoky camper with stars like Giancarlo Esposito and Bob Odenkirk. Jimmy Kimmel interviewed them on stage, where Bryan Cranston joined and the guy who played Bogdan got grilled about his eyebrows. The night was filled with cast members and fans dressed like their favorite characters, with Breaking Bad-themed bars for VIPs. We met a lot of cool people, including Paul himself, Robert Forrester, the evil twins (cool as hell) and our new BF Jeremiah Bitsu, who played Victor. Then there was an after-party DJ’d by Questlove and attended by Marilyn Manson, Bill Hader, and Ron Jeremy (who passed out on a couch until security roused him). Here are a few of our favorite moments. Enjoy!
