Childish Gambino is so revenge of the nerds

Childish Gambino gets no play up in my ride. But apparently lots in his.

He returns home for a show at the Tabernacle on March 16. $25. 8 p.m. Chicago weirdo Danny Brown opens. Camp is up for download, but it ain't free.

Pitch: Somebody should do an investigative piece on Donald Glover. Go back to Stone Mountain. Track down his high school teacher at Dekalb School of the Arts, former classmates, frenemies. Compare the portrait they paint to the themes he raps about in his mixtapes and album: suicidal thoughts, schoolyard bullying, lover's remorse. The cover could be his yearbook photo, defaced of course. And the title: Most Likely to (fill in the blank, for instance).
