Childish Gambino Visits South Beach

Donald Glover finally made it to Miami?!

Time to celebrate.

Yesterday was my second time seeing Childish Gambino, this first time I had to make the 4 hour trek to Orlando to see him.  You can read about that here if you’d like your memory refreshed.  Last night he was at the Fillmore in South Beach.  Luckily, I was able to sneak in my camera.

Danny Brown opened.  I had heard of him.  He’s definitely different and has his own style.  I like this song of his:

(Turn on the lights Fillmore, gosh) I just can’t handle song after song by him.  Having said that, I’ll probably download the Detroit native’s mixtapes.

Man, Mr. Glover’s show did not disappoint, in fact, I’d dare to say it was even better than the last.  He brought even more energy and so did his band, which really made the difference.  The crowd was going crazy.  See below. Sadly, I also realized I might need a new camera soon, she can’t handle bass like she used to.  😦

He even preformed a remix of the ever popular ‘Rack City’ (below).   Something tells me that’ll be on his mixtape coming up titled ….Mixtape.  He also preformed the intro to it “We Ain’t Them”.

This time, Childish even had a fancy backdrop for his stage.  Trees, better lighting, and better speakers… No offense Orlando.  Having said that, this performance seemed to have a lot more jailbait running around.  Childish definitely has the 16-19 age bracket on lock in South Florida…more like 18-22, but whats the difference?  I still felt like a AARP member.  Either way, I still enjoyed the show.

So now we wait.  Wait for his mixtape ‘Mixtape’ to drop so we can all enjoy some more free Childish Gambino.  Until then, I’ll leave you with one more video, Heartbeat, which is probably my most favorite song on his last album, Camp.

See you at Lollapalooza Mr. Glover.

DKA out.

Megapost of Music. QuESt, Childish, Ye, Mac Miller.

First up, Miami’s own QuESt.  I had heard a track or two from him last year. “If You Wanna” that caught my ear, but his other songs at the time just didn’t really stand out to me.  Well, that’s changed now after his last mixtape ‘Fear Not Failure’.  He brings out a new vibe and I’m a fan.

Check out the trailer below.

I’ve given this mixtape a couple listens to and it gets The DKA Life seal of approval.  The production has alot of electronic influence, which is always welcome.  A lot of the album…I mean mixtape, also has a Weeknd feel/sound production wise.  However, its a bit more uplifting than the Weeknd.  Definitely one of the best, complete projects I’ve heard thus far this year.

Hopefully I’ll get to see him live before I leave the 305.  I look forward to hearing more of his work.

…and stay tuned for GOOD Friday.

Yeah, I been slacking.  Mac Miller dropped this mixtape, ‘Macadelic’, off 2 weeks ago I believe.  I’ve enjoyed it.  This mixtape is a bit more mature and is a solid project that’s worth the download.

Well, I think that’s all I got for now.  I need to post more often, but I was busy working the ER and partying my ass off.  I’m home now, but when I get back to Miami, expect a couple more posts.  Definitely had an insane night at Liv that I’ll be blogging about.

That is all.  DKA out.
