What people are saying about David de Young:

"Touching on universal themes, such as girls, drinking and girls who like drinking, [David de Young] colored a musical palette that focused mainly on the beiges, but worked its way into the tans and even the light browns." - David Rachac, howwastheshow.com

"Nobody's ever going to mistake Mr. de Young for Al Green (or hell, even Dennis De Young)." - Steve McPherson, Pulse Twin Cities

I saw Dave play his few songs and thought they were not only good but his lyrics were pretty funny as he told dry (yet funny) jokes regarding girls and his age appropriate songs.

The King Straggler Band put on a great performance. My favorite part of the show was that 331 Bartender Jessy Greene ran home and grabbed her violin and played along for at least 6 or 7 songs. This was pretty impressive considering she had never heard any of thier original tunes. The sound mix was great, it wasn't to loud. The band had acoustic guitars and brushes for drums which was smart seeing that the tin cielings and slate floor can make the room really loud.

Future Lisa made me feel uncomfortable, I liked her outfit, but thought that the pelvec keyboard thrusts were hard to watch and vocals were harder to listen to.

I had a great time.
