So my sister says “Jake, I really want to go see Childish Gambino play in Cleveland.”
“I just got off work, Sarah. Give me a minute, would you?”
I shower, do some stuff, and go to a bonfire with some co-workers. I get a text. “Jake, please. I really want to go and mom says I can’t unless you take me. I’ll pay.”
Childish Gambino played Cleveland State University’s homecoming last night and while I’m told the student body didn’t vote for him, I’m most certainly glad he played. Everyone had a good time. It was a fantastic set.
He and his live band played through a fair lot of tunes spanning from his EP, LP, to his latest mixtape. He also played a new song for the first time (as far as YouTube is concerned).
The song is called “Shadows” and will appear on his forthcoming album, Because The Internet, due out this December. I recorded this on my iPhone 4s in a stadium, so you’ll have to deal with with the audio/visual issues that come with that. That said, it’s still listenable. Enjoy!
