Kennedy’s 30-date tour features Skeme as the opening performer, and his “Get Home Safely” LP is the second studio album from Kennedy, released on Oct. 15, 2013. The show was previously rescheduled from March 3. The scene at the WOW Hall featured an overwhelming crowd that kept the energy going until Kennedy ended his 50-minute set shortly before midnight. Many of the attendees were high school students or Portland residents who drove down to experience Kennedy in person.
