Trash Talk

At the Oakland Metro Operahouse.

Originally from Sacramento, the hardcore band Trash Talk gained clout in the Bay Area in the late Aughts before signing to LA rap collective Odd Future’s eponymous record label. They were the first act on the label that wasn’t part of its originator, Tyler, the Creator’s, crew. Though it makes fast, violent rock, Trash Talk’s association with Odd Future gave it unlikely crossover appeal in the rap world, and the group has been known to play alongside hip-hop acts, such as Antwon, an LA rapper who got his start in Oakland’s warehouse party scene. After releasing its debut studio album in 2014, No Peace, Trash Talk collaborated with Brooklyn MCs Flatbush Zombies on several stoner rap tracks, including the excellent “97.92.” The band performs at Oakland Metro Operahouse on February 20 alongside Minus, Hell in the Cell, Culture Abuse, and Strangeways.
