For a late-night Friday dessert, The Breakfast served up over two and a half hours of music at The Westcott Theater. The band proved it has as much stamina as it does talent. The four virtuosos from New Haven, CT played a 20-minute encore where both songs had as much intensity as the show’s beginning. These guys work hard on stage and don’t get tired of it, and neither did last night’s crowd of about a hundred.

PREVIEW: Drake’s MySpace
The Spring 2010 concert season keeps getting better—maybe. According to his MySpace, personal website and Billboard, Drake will be playing at “private location” in Syracuse, NY on April 30. He’s on a college tour, “Away from Home,” so it’s not completely crazy to think he’ll be coming to Syracuse University at that date. Nick Cicero, an SU grad student and producer signed to the same company as Drake’s producer, Neenyo, said Drake is “supposed to be coming,” but it isn’t “uber-official” yet.
Of course, this all could change as we get closer to the date. Don’t give your hopes up, but the hottest indie rapper could be coming soon.
Stay tuned for updates later.
