With his NBC comedy Community on hiatus, Donald Glover is spending the summer tending to his alt-rap career as Childish Gambino: In recent weeks, he has played Coachella, Sasquatch!, and Bonnaroo, and tonight, he hits Prospect Park for the second of two outdoor concerts (the first is Monday night in Central Park) designed to benefit SummerStage and the Celebrate Brooklyn! festival. Glover also just released a new song, “Silk Pillow,” with a guest verse by Beck in long-lost “Loser” mode; it’s a big improvement over his debut album, last year’s often-whiny Camp. With Danny Brown and Schoolboy Q.
