Friday Night: Ke$ha At Verizon Wireless Theater

Ke$ha Verizon Wireless Theater April 29, 2011

See more wild 'n' crazy pics of Ke$ha (and her fans) in our slideshow.

Before Ke$ha even hit the stage for her sold-out show Friday night at Verizon Wireless Theater, we saw limos full of prom-ready teens pulling up to the venue, mounds of glitter were embedded into the cracks in the pavement surrounding the building, and the image of an empty glitter container and three cigarette butts will be ingrained in our brains for all time. Or at least the next few weeks.

There were Ke$ha spirit hoods on sale at the merch table, those animal-head fashion accessories we saw all over SXSW in March. One shirt from opener Beardo had the word "school" crossed out like so many '80s drug ads.

Beware the textbook like that ugly boy who smells in biology class.
