In @donaldglover’s first AU show for his “last tour ever” — his words, not mine — there was EVERYTHING. New music (video related), full choirs, school kids backflipping onto splits, and even a shout-out to Tame Impala: “Black people fuck with Tame Impala — y’all should be proud.” pic.twitter.com/LF6BsuvGXn

Referencing a tweet about Tame Impala that went viral last week, Glover told the Perth crowd that they should be proud to have Kevin Parker and co’s band as their own, calling them a “band black people fuck with”.
