I was introduced a little while back to Darren Criss at a birthday party where we had fun abbiamo parlato in italiano (he studied abroad in Italy). Very cool multi-talented musician who recently has been in the tv show Glee.
Darren played a super high energy show at the Roxy this Saturday and took it a step further by making the show a toys for tots drive. Any fan who brought in a toy would get an autographed picture of Darren. It was amazing how many toys showed up, really nice ones too! His fans don't skimp on a good cause. It was also crazy to see the dedication of the fans, there was an endless line of umbrellas waiting on rainy Sunset Blvd to get inside.
1 - Darren, the toys and I / 2 - uber joy -- I only stuck around for the first show and the toys surrounding him were only a fraction of the first batch, I can only imagine how the haul turned out in the end / 3 - shiny mirror disco ball / 4 - working.. in a phantom planet tee! / 5 - my friend Christian manning the merch/toy boot / 6 - modern day concert pariphenalia : a sea of digital cams and cell phones ... lighters are now a part of the days of yore / 7 - Darren merch, I'm seeing a pattern here.. / 8 - lights, digital cams, show time.
