Childish Gambino performs at A&O Blowout on Friday night. The rapper headlined the show at a relatively crowded Welsh-Ryan Arena.

From rock to indie to rap, students heard from all corners of the music industry Friday night at A&O Blowout.

Donald Glover, also known by his stage name Childish Gambino, headlined the concert at Welsh-Ryan Arena. Chicago rockers AyOH kicked off the event, opening for indie band Grouplove.

Fresh off the new record “Spreading Rumours,” Grouplove opened with “I’m With You,” the first song off the album. The band followed with hit tracks “Itchin’ on a Photograph” and “Borderlines and Aliens.” In the middle of the set, Grouplove’s drummer, Ryan Rabin, took the microphone to address the crowd.

“Did anyone live in Bobb?” he asked. “Cool. So did I.”
