Donald Glover is a busy man. The actor/comedian has written for television shows The Daily Show and 30 Rock, stars in NBC’s comedy series Community, and is currently touring the country under the guise of his hip hop alter-ego Childish Gambino. He recently stopped in Orlando to perform for a sold-out show at the Plaza Theatre – but not before doing an in-store appearance and performance at local record store Park Ave CDs.
Full Sail Recording Arts students ran sound for the event and recorded the performance, which drew a capacity-sized crowd. After his brief set, Gambino stayed to sign autographs and meet face-to-face with fans.
In-store performances are some of Park Ave CDs’ most popular events, and Full Sail students have been there to run sound for bands such like Frank Turner, Less Than Jake, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Little Dragon, and more. A few of the recorded shows have even seen a national release, including titles from Snow Patrol, Porcupine Tree, Jose Gonzalez, and Gaslight Anthem.
