David Aaron @ CBGB Gallery 8/15: Genuine

Last night, I skipped out on the Dirty Pretty Things to see an up and coming musician I discovered through MySpace. Sometimes, you just gotta remove yourself from the scene to discover something good for yourself.


David Aaron is definitely still in the raw stages of his career. It was amazing to see this young guy come bumbling into CBBGs with a guitar on his back, 5 minutes late, and get up there with no setlist and just go for it. His talent was so palpable, his tunes so catchy and his stage presence so likeable that I just thought, "give this guy a little direction and you'll all be singing along to 'Genuine' or 'Just an Ex' on z100 in a year." I know you indie kids out there just collectively said "Is this suppose to make me like him?" but, honestly, yes. He is one of those rare talents that can write a song that is so original and in tune with the human spirit that it can't help but become a top 10 hit. You have to appreciate that. Not to mention, he's a REALLY nice guy.

His songs are a combination of pop, soul, country-rock and something in there that reminded me of the Beastie Boys- something beyond the Brooklyn connection. You can download a whole slew of David's mp3's on his site and stream his music and check his tour dates on his MySpace. On August 31st he will be at the Alphabet Lounge at 10pm for all us NYC kids.

Three passions,warcraft leveling simple but wow lvl overwhelmingly strong,wow power level have governed wow power level my life: the longing wrath of the lich king power leveling for love, the search for knowledge,World of warcraft Power Leveling and unbearable pity WOTLK Power Leveling for the suffering wlk power leveling of mankind. These passions,wlk power leveling like great winds,age of conan gold have blown me hither and thither,cheap aoc gold in a wayward course,aoc power leveling over a great ocean ffxi gil of anguish, reaching final fantasy xi gil to the very verge of despair. I have sought love, first, because it brings ecstasy - ecstasy so great that I would often have sacrificed FFXI Gil all the rest of life for final fantasy gil a few hours of this joy. I have sought it, next, because it relieves loneliness--that terrible loneliness in which one shivering consciousness dog clothes looks over the rim of the world into the cold unfathomable lifeless abyss.
