Drake Electrifies Lowell

If you ever want to experience chaos, go to a college campus for a sold-out Drake show that’s been rescheduled from six months prior. Have the arena organized as the free-for-all that is general admission seating, and time it so that Lil Waynes prison release date is nine days away.

Such was the scene last night at an electrified Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell, where Drake performed a 75-minute set, postponed from a date in April, and Lil Wayne was present in every form but the physical.
