Do you remember me talking about Childish Gambino a couple of months ago? Well, the actor/tv writer/sketch comedian/rapper Donald Glover has been busy. He (as Childish Gambino) just recently signed a deal with Glassnote Records (the ones responsible for bands like Mumford & Sons and Phoenix), and is set to release his debut LP, Camp, on November 1st. His intelligent and humorous take on hip-hop has received the acclaim of numerous music outlets, and was recently highlighted in NPR’s All Songs Considered podcast.
You still have a chance to see Childish Gambino tonight at the Cannery Ballroom. Tickets are $22 and doors open at 8pm when DJ Siik kicks things off. Thursday is mini-Friday, so, watch Donald as Troy Barnes on Community at 7pm, and then go see him as Childish Gambino at 8pm. Get out there and see some live music.
I updated the playlist from below to include the track, Bonfire, from the NPR podcast. I also grabbed a video of Freaks and Geeks below. These are NOT SAFE FOR YOUR CUBICLE.
