Review: Stu Larsen at the Lexington

The master at work.

The story of Stu Larsen is one that feels like it’s been passed down through the ages: A young, hairy, male from a small town in Australia dreamed of travelling the world performing music. He used to run down to his post box a few miles away from his home, cry, and then run home again – then he found a friend in Passenger and toured the world with him, building up his own fan base.

As much as that sounds like a folk tale, it’s true and the man that stands on stage every night in front of 100’s of adoring fans is as authentic as it comes.

Review: Backstreet Boys - Show 'Em What You're Made Of

The Backstreet Boys are back! The documentary film shows the five members of the band starting a new chapter in their life by reuniting and working on their 20th anniversary album titled In a World Like This and their brand new tour.

Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of is quite an intimate documentary but in a positive way as we can see the connection between the men throughout the film, especially when they go to visit their home towns and when they rehearse.

The film features old clips of the boy band from their past and it shows them reminiscing over their good memories but what really makes this film real is the band mates, not only talking about the good times, but also talking about the issues they faced when they were a part of the music industry at such a young age such as dealing with…
