Kicking off the Memorial Day holiday weekend with Leikeli47 at Baby's All Right was an absolute joy. The performance took place On Friday, May 25th and sold out a long time ago. When I saw she was performing at Baby's, I immediately bought tickets for myself and my fiancé when they went on sale. I can easily say this show last night was one of the best I've attended all year.
Leikeli47 was backed by three dancers, was gregarious, funny, and at one point, brought audience members on the stage to give them positive affirmations on their looks and style. She announced she had one song left and the audience immediately broke out into asking for an encore. She then asked people what they wanted to hear and performed brief versions to fit in as many requests as she could into her ending set. During one point in the show she politely asked people to put their phones away and live in the moment with her and each other. This show was part of a four date tour and she mentioned the Baby's All Right was her first sold out show and the first one to sell out from the tour.
She was joined by fellow Brooklyn rapper Kris Kasanova and a DJ who kept the audience dancing before and after sets. I felt lucky to witness her perform in a small room such as Baby's All Right because I know she'll be rightfully playing bigger spaces very soon.
