Countdown to @LifeIsBeautiful: 16 Days – Childish Gambino

9 Oct

Taking a break from acting, focusing back on music and just posted that the new album is wrapped, this should make for an epic performance from Childish Gambino. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing him perform a handful of times and he’s never disappointed and a suspect Life is Beautiful will be a wild one!

  • Betty Wright: The Movie with The Roots, a soulful album with plenty of guest spots may be the play however.

New Music: Childish Gambino

16 Jun

One of the best parts of a music festival is discovering new music and at Bonnaroo I did just that.  On the first night of the festival I found myself bouncing around and after catching the end of The Walkmen’s set and waiting for Deerhunter to go on, I stumbled upon Childish Gambino and within minutes was blown away.  I had absolutely zero notion of who he was or what kind of music I was preparing myself for but left craving more and while hip-hop is his game, I loved the fact that he has a kick ass band backing him.  Oh yeah, Childish Gambino is the alter ego of comedian Donald Glover; a tiny bit of information you should know ;).

I may be late to this party as he’s be rapping for some years now but I’ll take a new discovery any day.

Bonnaroo X Schedule Released Today

13 May


Finally the Bonnaroo schedule has been released! Click HERE to take a look. As expected when the schedule came out, there are  many many conflicts and overlaps with artists and set times. Of course for me there are the staple artists that are marked as must sees (Widespread Panic, String Cheese Incident, Buffalo Springfield, Mumford & Sons, Gregg Allman, Robert Plant, G. Love, The Black Keys, Warren Haynes, etc.) and after that, time to figure out the rest. Who knows, my ideal schedule today may end up being completely different when I arrive. All I know is there is a ton of great music and I can’t wait to be surrounded by 90,000 of my new closest friends.
