The last time we were privy to the whirlwind represented by Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino, to paraphrase one of the lasting quoteshe left us with, ‘If I was wasn’t doing this… i’d probably being doing music…’.
Those words have rung true.
Following his career through the comedy circuit, through his writing stint on 30 Rock (during an Emmy winning year), his starring role in Community, and now his whirlwind tour as musician, Childish Gambino, we are left at a loss of words as to what we experienced tonight while trying to review his show. It is a telling point when an artist who broke during the mix tape generation can stage a show where EVERYONE in the crowd knew all the words every track in his set.
Catch the break for a rerun of our first (and the first on the net interview) spot with Donald, and also catch the quick photoblog of our (sober) time catching his set.
Being a busy man, fitting this show between Coachella weekends, expect another interview from the boys in a few…
