Are Odd Future coming to Minnesota?

Though the band only has one US date on the books right now -- a stop at Austin, Texas's Fun Fun Fun Fest in early November -- Odd Future posted a map to their Tumblr page that hinted that they might be making a stop in Minnesota before the year is over. 

In true Tumblr form, the divisive rap group marked several states on a map of the United States with kitten faces (seriously), along with the headline "2011 Tour" and the note "Canada too..."

Since the group has never performed in Minnesota before, we're guessing they aren't big enough to play even a half-arena quite yet. So where would be the best place for them to play? First Avenue, or maybe the Cabooze's outdoor patio?

Odd Future's presence has grown exponentially this year, skyrocketing from obscurity to being proclaimed the "future of rap" by P. Diddy in just a few short months and causing controversy with their lyrical caricature sketches of violence. A recent profile in the Chicago Sun-Times might sum up their career so far the best: "Odd Future certainly isn't the first music act to terrify the predominately white media with tales of violence and gore, nor will they be the last."

YES... We all need to go support these guys!  We need to keep spreading the word about the awesomeness of killing and rape!  It's the only way that we'll grow as a society!  If you don't like hearing about this kind of stuff you're just an intolerant hater...

I think they could easily fill the mainroom on buzz alone. Hell, I think I've only enjoyed 2, maybe 3 of the collective's songs to date, and I'd be tempted to go on intrigue alone.

I was assuming/hoping they'd come to the Triple Rock, though the Cabooze would make sense since they seem to get most of the mid-popularity hiphop acts. Are Odd Future really big enough to play the mainroom? I mean, I know they're crazy hyped, but there's no way their cult is that big, right?

KILL PEOPLE BURN SHIT FUCK SCHOOL.

This tour is going to be AWESOME. First Ave is the obvious choice though. Outdoor stage at the Cabooze would be awesome, but I'm expecting a tour around late Fall-ish, so obviously we would have 8 inches of snow by then.

Yeah fuck those rappers being all obsessed with murders and rape!    What is wrong with those people?    You know what I'm saying when I say those people right white people?   It's like Fox News points out, rappers pretty much invented violence and rape.   Before Run DMC and other thug rappers I had never seen a movie or read a book that featured rape or murder.    Now I'm going to go read the Bible, no rape or murder in there.

They would sell out First Ave.
