call us brutal, sick, sadistic, and grotesquely optimistic

WHY IS THIS GIF SET NOT AROUND MORE?!
I like that they’re all so supportive of one another, but still decide to crack in skulls when they get mad.
Such good friends.
This is like, the opposite of that scene from High School musical where the guy admits he plays the cello
As early as 3am on Sunday, Childish Gambino fans waited outside Rough Trade NYC to be the very first to buy his new album, because the internet. Those who got in earliest were invited to see him perform that evening in a secret, somewhat random, loft in Manhattan.
100+ dedicated Tumblr’ers traversed two boroughs, huddled outside in the snow and huffed up six flights of stairs to what culminated in a super intimate, memorable show. In a representation of the mansion setting where he recorded the album, with projections that brought his art to life and backed by a full band, Childish Gambino presented his new music to his most passionate fans as it was meant to be discovered, IRL.
Somehow, they had already learned all the words.
Big thanks to Childish Gambino for hosting, providing the music and signing a million autographs in his room, Brian Roettinger for creating the art, Glassnote Music, Rough Trade and the incredibly chill dude who welcomed us into his home.
