Odd Future's show in Boston, Massachusetts on Wednesday night (21Mar12) was cut short when cops and a promoter shut it down.
The hip-hip group took to the stage at the city's House of Blues venue, but the music went off in the middle of their set.
The chaos was captured in a video obtained by Pitchfork.com, which shows bandmember Tyler, The Creator attempting to explain to the crowd what's happening.
He said, "You guys are gonna think we're d**ks... I was gonna finish this song cos y'all (sic) paid money but the promoter cut us off... So before I go, we wanted to finish it (the show) but the owner of the club made us turn it off and the police are right there..."
However, Tyler didn't get to finish his speech as his microphone was switched off and the stage lights went dark, leading to boos and jeers from the crowd.
The website reports the shut down came after a member of the band's road crew was allegedly arrested outside the venue, but no more details were available as WENN went to press.
Odd Future previously got into trouble in Boston last year (12) when police had to step in to calm fans after a riot kicked off during an autograph signing at a comic book store.
