Childish Gambino will headline at Conquest concert

first_imgYasmeen Serhan contributed to this report. USC Concerts Committee, a group within Program Board, and the USC Office of Campus Activities announced that Childish Gambino will headline Thursday’s Conquest concert -— part of an annual spirit rally before the USC-UCLA football game.Childish Gambino is one of the first solo artists to perform for Conquest. In the past, headliners for Conquest included Cobra Starship, Third Eye Blind, the Dan Band and OK GO. Comedian Michael Ian Black will host this year’s Conquest.Donald Glover, who performs under the stage name Childish Gambino, released his first hip-hop mixtape in 2008. Last November, he released Camp, his first album on a major record label. The record has sold more than 160,000 copies in the United States. Glover also has a career in television and film: he was an actor on NBC’s Community and a member of the sketch comedy group Derrick Comedy that wrote the feature-length film Mystery Team.This year, Conquest starts at 7 p.m. and will be held on McCarthy Quad. Students are required to show their student IDs to enter the concert.Most students reacted positively to the announcement of Childish Gambino as the Conquest headliner, including Konrad Mueller, a sophomore majoring in economics and mathematics.“I’m really stoked that Gambino is playing,” Mueller said. “I feel like he’s one of the best up-and-coming rappers in the rap game right now and I feel like it’s awesome that we were able to land such a great act like that.”Though some students were excited for the newcomer artist, other students expressed disappointment.“I’d heard of Childish Gambino before, but I never listened to [him] so I’m going to listen to [him] now,” said Jennifer Bailey, a freshman neuroscience major. “But I’m just wondering why we couldn’t get anyone more famous.”In addition to Gambino, Conquest will include performances by the Trojan Marching Band and the Song Girls. Plans for the event also include a bonfire and fireworks display.Regardless of whether students are excited or ambivalent toward Childish Gambino’s performance, most students said they were excited for the Conquest celebration and the football game against UCLA on Saturday.Francisco Gomez-Palacio, a freshman majoring in music industry, said he was eager to experience his first Conquest.“Ever since Childish Gambino’s Camp album came out, I’ve been a big fan,” Gomez-Palacio said. “I think it’s going to be really fun on a college campus, so I’m really excited for it to happen.”last_img read more

Men’s Soccer: Badgers avoid another loss with 1-1 tie at Spartans

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin men’s soccer team battled the No. 21 University of Michigan State Spartans to a 1-1 tie Sunday afternoon.Both the Badgers (6-2-2, 3-1-1 Big Ten) and Spartans (8-2-1, 3-1-1 Big Ten) had been on three game winning streaks when they met in East Lansing this weekend. The two were also both playing to take solo ownership of second place in the Big Ten standings, with perennial powerhouse Maryland sitting in first place.With two teams playing consistently dominant defense behind two goal keepers playing at high levels, the game was expected to be a defensive battle, and it lived up to the hype.Without reigning NSCAA National Player of the Week sophomore defender Sam Brotherton, as he was the playing for the New Zealand national team, the Badgers had to look for other players to step up in his place. Senior Matej Radonic did just that in the 21st minute when he took an assist from Noah Leibold and scored his first goal of the season. The goal put Wisconsin up early in the game, but it was the last the Badgers could post in the game.Brotherton will return next week and should be a big addition to a UW team already gathering tremendous depth.The Badgers defense held until the 36th minute when Michigan State sophomore Dejuan Jones sent a shot past Wisconsin goalie Phillip Schilling off an assist from Michael Pimlott.In the second half of the game, both teams struggled to get any good runs or shots on goal which resulted in the defensive battle that everyone expected to see. Badger duo Chris Mueller and Tom Barlow had chances at various points at the end but couldn’t find the back of the net. In the final few minutes, Michigan State had a chance of their own when Jones had a chance to score his second goal of the game but missed the net.In the end, the stats matched what the final score stated about the game. Both teams matched or nearly matched each other in every category. Wisconsin had 8 shots with 3 on goal while the Spartans had 7 total with 3 on goal. On the defensive side, Badger keeper Schilling had two saves.The Badgers play again Tuesday at home in Madison against in state rival UW-Green Bay at 7 p.m.last_img read more
