HAFH: Cool Kids x Lupe Fiasco at Assembly Hall (Pictures/Video)

The last Lupe Fiasco show I went to at the House of Blues started five and half hours later than it was supposed to, ended 20 minutes after it began, and left me pissed off for the next 48+ hours. My last Cool Kids show, on the other hand, was probably the best time I had at Lollapalooza- Chuck and Mikey performed on Perry’s stage for over 10,000 fans. On Sunday night, I went to the Cool Kids and Lupe Fiasco show at Assembly Hall. I wanted to see if Lupe could redeem himself after the “Fiasco-gate” at the House of Blues, and if the Cool Kids could bring the same energy and positive vibes they are known for to a smaller venue with a lot less people who knew their songs.

Check out after the jump to see reviews, photos, and a video of a live performance!
