Take A Look At Childish Gambino's 'PHAROS' Shows From Joshua Tree

Childish Gambino Pharos

Everything about Donald Glover’s new Childish Gambino album has been mysterious. First, he launched a app with a countdown to an unexplained event that later revealed he'd be hosting three camping shows called "PHAROS" at Joshua Tree from Sept. 2-4. He also shared that each show would be a full experience to debut the Childish Gambino LP. 

The first performance kicked off last night (Sept. 2) and looked bizarre, to say the least. Little was known about what it would entail. Fans were instructed to store their phone in a special bag that locks so no videos or photos would be taken. Although we weren't able to make it, there were a handful of audience members who managed to sneak in their phones to provide updates on the show. 

The concert took place in a dome that seemed to incorporate video projections. This is what fans saw inside the dome: 

Everything about the show looks strange. His music was said to be island/tribal-influenced and different from previous Childish Gambino music. Watch the videos below:

In addition to playing new music, he invited fans to watch the first episode of his highly anticipated new show on FX, Atlanta.

The event received mixed reactions from the crowd and was certainly one of the more interesting album rollouts we’ve seen.
