Live Review from Underground 91:
alright!!!! this is Underground 91 (cannot believe it’s ALREADY 91?!) and the night started with “David and Kyra”, an acoustic duo formed by two youngsters David Shurr and Kyra Santiago, who write about everything and everyone in their age. I did enjoy their songs almost as much as I enjoyed the songs in the movie JUNO, very well written and nicely sung, especially when we consider how young they are, most of us didn’t even think about singing like them when we were 15, did we?! Without question they have a lot of potential in them, and they showed that “acoustic music” is a genre, but not playing what you’d play on electrics using acoustics.
And when they “acoustified” some of the dance floor anthems including GaGa’s “Bad Romance” and Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok” into a medley, and then with Kris Allen’s version of Kayne West’s “Heartless” ending their set, it’s obvious which way they are going to. With more experience and dynamic in their writing and performing, I’m sure they will have a lot more good times performing ahead of them.
