If the torrent of anticipation surrounding Earl Sweatshirt's album "Doris" isn't  sufficient for you, now the much-touted Odd Future rapper has something else for you to look forward to -- a free L.A. show.

The MC has announced a free set at the El Rey Theatre on Aug. 28. But you're going to have to work to get in.

Tickets are only available to fans who buy copies of "Doris" from the official Odd Future Wolf Gang store (at 410 N. Fairfax Ave. in Mid-City) starting Aug. 20. One album purchase gets one free ticket, and tickets are expected to sell out quickly. 

TIMELINE: Summer's must see concerts

The gig is Earl's only scheduled show in L.A. at the moment. The rest of his OF cohorts are planning a downtown L.A.-area carnival on Nov. 9., with Tyler, The Creator and Frank Ocean as headliners, with a full lineup still TBD. 

In the meantime, if you want to land a ticket to this show, start camping in your tan Cressida on Fairfax.
