Andrew Bird, Noam Chomsky, and Troy From "Community" Are Coming to Town

Posted By on Tue, Dec 6, 2011 at 4:00 PM

Not together, but you might want to get your 2012 datebook out, because the events are starting to pile up in the first half of next year.

The Rialto announced two shows today, the first of which is Childish Gambino, actor/comedian Donald Glover's hip hop project on April 10th. Pitchfork didn't like his latest album, Camp, but it should be an interesting show as Glover explores topics including Asian women and the struggle of being a nerd in rap culture.

Ten days later, Andrew Bird returns to town on April 20th, promoting his new album Break It Yourself, which comes out in March. As an extra bonus, if you buy a ticket for his show at the Rialto, you get a digital copy of the album for free as well as a live EP from his last tour and another live EP (which you'd receive in the spring) with material from this tour. Laura Marling opens for Bird, which is great news as well.

Tickets for both shows go on sale this Friday at 10 am.

On a nearly entirely different note, Noam Chomsky will be coming to Centennial Hall as part of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences' Lecture Series, speaking on the topic "Education for Whom and for What?" on February 8th. The event is free and Chomsky will answer questions from the audience following his presentation.
