Last Night: Donald Glover & Childish Gambino At Warehouse Live

Donald Glover/Childish Gambino Warehouse Live May 3, 2011

WTF is "nerdcore"? That's what we went out to discover last night at Warehouse Live at the combination comedy and rap show performed by the same dude, Donald Glover, whose rap style as Childish Gambino has been lumped into this weird subgenre.

Glover raps, acts on NBC's Community, does stand-up, sings and, to top it all off, he's super-buff. All of this didn't really convince us, however... we'll explain the breakdown later.

First thing you need to know: Warehouse Live was packed with serious, die-hard fans: fans that told us every release he's put out since 2008 and who were wearing his "signature" red jacket. Question: Since when does a red AmApp jacket become someone's signature look?
