A Million Words: Highlights from Gambino’s Spring Weekend set

By the time Childish Gambino got on stage, I was a bit of a mess. I had four whole key limes in my purse and was wearing a balloon animal hat, or as I had requested: “a head thing with all the colors but also has a dog on it.” I had lost my group of friends, and I was feeling alone and confused and thirsty and dejected. But when Childish started rapping “Freaks and Geeks,” all that ceased to matter. The DTau bros next to me? The couple inappropriately sucking each other’s faces off behind me? They all became my friends when the crowd was screaming: “YEAH THAT’S POETRY IN MOTION.” Thanks, Art House Sixty, for capturing some of the energy of the best night of my life.

Though I do wish I had found my friend (and Blog columnist) Remy in the crowd. Apparently she “sensually squeezed” his bicep.

Childish Gambino drops new track

Our favorite 4/20 headliner (could we have asked for better?) just released the song “Eat Your Vegetables.” No lyrics about studying rape culture at Brown in this pretty chill track as far as we can tell, although it does include a very timely Trayvon Martin shout-out.

Preparations have begun, as people dust off their Hazeltine tanks and start obsessing over the weather reports. So BlogDH has compiled a (preliminary) list of drank suggestions, with the help of Drinkify, that correspond to this year’s performers. Rage responsibly.

In honor of Camp, the much anticipated first label release by Community star Donald Glover’s rap alter ego Childish Gambino, dropping today, we thought it would be fun to rewind 5 years to the heyday of Glover’s old comedy group, Derrick Comedy.  Check out “Drunk Baby” above and a bunch of our other favorites after the jump.
