By now you've heard all about the craziness that was Houston Appreciation Weekend, four days so over the top that we've already had to bust some myths on the subject. And sure, while the movie premiere and the pool party and the Astros game were all cool, it was the big show at the not particularly big Warehouse Live that had the most buzz. It's not every day you get to see one of the top 5 most popular rappers alive in a space that small.
Houston Appreciation Weekend was about giving back, and (as you may have heard) to get into the show you had to put in work. The end result was a large crowd who gave their time to make the city a better place, all lined up around Warehouse Live.
And since they weren't going anywhere, it seemed as good a time as any to find out more about the type of person who volunteers for a concert ticket.
As you'll see in the video below, we asked them three simple questions:
1. What did you do to get your ticket? 2. What makes Drake so great? 3. What would you do to meet the man himself?
Drake doesn't seem like the type to demand that much of his fans, especially from those in Houston. And who knows, if HAW becomes a regular thing, maybe we'll all eventually get to meet him.
Hopefully without doing anything too embarrassing.
