Childish Gambino performs on Day 1 of the Osheaga Music and Arts Festival on Aug. 1, 2014 in Montreal, Canada. 

UPDATE: Childish Gambino is adding another show to his Joshua Tree trek in September after his Pharos shows sold out in six minutes. Late night performances have been added to his Sept. 2 and Sept. 3 with tickets going on sale at 3 p.m. ET on Friday (June 24). 

Childish Gambino is back in business. As promos for his forthcoming FX show Atlanta make their rounds, the rapper/actor/comic (born Donald Glover) has announced a trio of West Coast shows in September, dubbed Pharos, where he promises to give fans the "full album experience" via a link to the "Pharos Earth" app on his Twitter page.

The upcoming LP serves as the follow-up to 2013's Grammy-nominated Because the Internet, which housed the hits "V. 3005" and "I. Crawl."
