Most musicians give up after hearing hard criticism or some hater telling you, “you suck”. Very few musicians will turn around and take that negativity and turn it in to motivation. A lot of musicians will give up after a couple of years pass by and still no record deal. Fame and fortune is some thing every body wants but no one understands you have to grind to get it, nothing in this life is given. But there is one artist that understands the game and knows patience is the key to unlocking this door so many people try to open every single day. Juno Leslie is a upcoming artist thats been on his grind since before high school. Juno has come a long way from recording in his moms garage with a Rock Band mic to 100s of fans tweeting his lyrics and requesting his music. Its insane how an artist can have so much recognition and respect amongst other musicians with no mixtape or album. After the world heard Juno Leslie’s latest single “Tonight” fans are now demanding a mixtape they are hungry for more but the question is will Juno give the public food for hunger ? Im sure he has something up his sleeve.
Ok, so I got rush tickets for Hedwig tonight and managed to snag some orchestra tickets. The show was incredible and as good as I expected.
Darren took a few minutes to get into character with the odd verbal stumble at the start but he quickly found his groove and from that point on was outstanding.
It was pretty much a full house with some hard core hedheads which created a great atmosphere. Moments that stick with me were the ‘love the front of me’ monologue. The changes between Tommy and Hedwig are superb and Darren completely mastered the audience. There was absolute silence during this. It’s the only time I’ve been in a theatre where no one even coughed. That part was heart breaking and I loved that he had that control over everyone during that. There was thunderous applause after WLT reprise, but the audience quickly quietened down.
His comic timing was great, and his voice is amazing. Yitzhak had the crowd on her side and lena got huge applause and love tonight especially at the end when she walks through the theatre in her finery.
The jokes remained the same, no genuine Chris Colfer joke, and it’s still James Franco at the back.
Darren sugar daddied a dude at the front, and held his head still whilst he thrusted in his face - the dude seemed happy.
Anyway these are just some hedwig thoughts from a mind that’s still jet lagged.
