Comedian/Actor Turned Rapper: Childish Gambino Tonight at Neumos

We’ll be the first to admit it: we love Donald Glover. From his role as Troy on Community to his stand up (which we were lucky to experience last year at Bumbershoot), we just think the guy is great. And in case you haven’t heard, Glover is in town with another one of his projects that we love: Childish Gambino.

It isn’t widely known that Glover is not only a talented actor and comedian, but he’s also a talented rapper as well. At first blush, his music isn’t anything you’d want your mother to hear you listening to. His songs are sprinkled with F-bombs and derogatory slang, which are things we don’t usually flock to here at SEA live MUSIC. But Chicago’s Gowhere surmises that these are “either shock value or comedic value,” which we think is spot on. All cursing and joking aside, Glover actually deals with some fairly intimate themes in his songs (especially in “Difference,” the first song off his album Culdesac). Plus he uses some great samples throughout.

Head to Neumos tonight to see Glover in action. And make sure you leave your mom at home.
