Harry Shum Jr. of The LXD

If you haven’t been living under a rock, chances are you’ve heard of Glee.  On a spontaneous whim, Alyssa convinced me to go to the Glee tour, 4 hours before it started!  Best impulsive decision ever.  The cast of Glee is currently touring the incredibly talented LXD.  I’ve been a fan of LXD for a while, and the small screen just doesn’t do them justice.  I got a chance to chat with Jon Chu, an extremely cool guy who also happens to be the brainchild behind the LXD.  A big THANK YOU to all the members of LXD, especially Jon M. Chu, Harry Shum Jr., and Chris Scott, for putting together such an inspirational show.  (is it too much if i wanted to make my own LXD fan shirt? :P)

After an amazing opening by the LXD, the Glee cast came out full force!  It amazes me how Glee has managed to capture the creative spirits in everyone.  The Gibson Amphitheatre was instantly transformed into a giant karaoke room.  The audience were dancing and singing along FOR THE ENTIRE SHOW.  Definitely one of the funnest tour experiences I’ve had. Period.

The weekend fun continued with a trip out to the Devil’s Night Drive-In in downtown LA.  The parking lot rooftop is transformed into a drive-in with the gorgeous downtown LA backdrop.  BYOB and a great vibe made this an especially fun screening of the classic John Hughes’ Pretty In Pink.

There are hidden gems everywhere in LA.  I grew up in this city, and I’m still learning just what it has to offer.
