Childish Gambino, Eve 6 and an R.E.M. Tribute and More in This Week's New Show Announcements
Submitted for your consideration: Every newly-announced show this week! KDHX's Tribute to R.E.M. on April 27 is sure to be packed -- which is especially good, considering it is a benefit show for the independent radio station. Don Glover, star of NBC's Community brings his rapping alter-ego Childish Gambino -- a moniker the accomplished television writer reportedly acquired through a "Wu-Tang name generator" -- to the Pageant on June 7. Interestingly, Eve 6 (remember that "put my tender heart in a blender" song? Yeah, those guys) are playing April 7 at Fubar -- an interesting fit that should make for an extra interesting show. Corrosion of Conformity, Bailiff, Fucked Up, Ringworm and Tim Barry all have upcoming shows in town as well. Embedded videos and music by the aforementioned bands follow on the first page; page two contains a full listing of every show announced this week.
