Childish Gambino at the Kibbie Dome

Wed 2 May – Childish Gambino, Sweatshop Union

A group from Vancouver B.C. opened up the set. Before the show I had never heard of them and after seeing them I'm still pretty indifferent. Friends i was standing with told me they frequently play Moscow so i guess they have a large enough following in the area to make a profit on a seven hour trip. Decent beats and a good soundboard mix kept everyone attentive and energetic for Donald to take the stage.

Childish took the stage next and I have to say the evening made for one of the best live shows i have ever seen. He was genuinely excited to perform his songs and everyone in attendance seemed equally as excited. For the first half of the set i thought to myself, this is weird that he's actually here In Moscow of all places. The set was a good mix of 'Camp' but with 'Culdesac' and his "Freaks and Geeks EP" thrown in the mix. I was a little upset the live band couldn't be heard as clearly as they should have been, but i think that was more the sound engineer than anything. Highlights of the show definitely included opening with 'Outside,' live violins on 'Freaks and Geeks,' and 'You See Me.'

Added a link for the 'Rack City' freestyle. The video isn't from the University of Idaho show but you get the general idea.
