Drake at Wells Fargo Theatre, 11/02/10

DRAKE
With Tyga
11.02.10 | Wells Fargo Theatre

It seems Tyga -- last night's opener -- got the memo that donning a puffy vest in Colorado makes you automatically likable. We have braved decades of trends in those things, and nothing makes you look native quite like sleeveless body armor made out of sleeping-bag material. Unfortunately, the familiar apparel choice was the only comforting thing about Tyga's performance. Clocking in at just under thirty minutes, the resident Young Money skinny man's set was dry, abrasive and boring.
