This is the first installment of Joonbug's weekly live music preview. Check back here every Monday to see who's coming to town and why you should overcome your crippling agoraphobia.
Tuesday May 10th
Donald Glover - Bowery Ballroom
Donald Glover is making us all look bad. He was hired as writer for 30 Rock straight out of NYU. He’s a staple of the comedy series Community where he gets to riff with Chevy Chase. His videos with Derrick Comedy and Funny or Die have been the bane of any computer bound procrastinator. And to top it off he lashes his razor wit through a mic when he moonlights as the rapper Childish Gambino. Yes, he makes us look lazy, but he also makes us laugh.
