Mad love, among other things, was in the air Valentine's Day for Dom Kennedy's "Get Home Safely" tour. The bass of the Ballroom's speakers pushed the aromatic cannabis scent out the front doors of Warehouse Live onto St. Emanuel Street, while couples and loners alike lined the outside of the building dressed in their swaggy-est, most weather-appropriate street wear.
On the inside, loyal fans pressed up against the guardrails separating the general area from the stage, while Houston's hip-hop elite perched atop the elevated platform to the left of the venue nearest the V.I.P. area.
After openers ShoStoppa, hailing from Austin, and Houston's own WhyJae, concertgoers were introduced to the headliner's co-signee, Skeme. Mostly performing songs from his recent Ingleworld album, Skeme left the stage with adequate energy for his later return during Kennedy's performance.
