Dave End

Dave End will perform at OJ All Day 2nd Stage Saturday June 20, 11:30pm

Dave End- This acoustic D.I.Y. troubador writes Queer Cupcake Loving Honesty Pop and focuses on the details that rhyme. Listening to Dave End's music is like giving your younger self a hug. It makes you feel like you're okay, not despite your struggles but because of them. Tackling subject matters like bullying, homophobia, body image and heartbreak, Dave End could easily fall into the slippery traps of self-pity and earnestness, but he manages to keep his songs aloft with humor, bounce, and jamboree-style glee.

In the past 2 years, Dave End has released 2 albums (How to Hold Your Own Hand, Fruits Commonly Mistaken For Vegetables), played over 200 shows, toured over 18,000 miles (4,000 miles of this in a veggie diesel car), performed in a musical, joined a dance troupe, and has recently designed costumes for Kimya Dawson Performances. Currently, Dave is writing a new show entitled, “Fabulous Artistic Guys Get Overtly Traumatized Sometimes: The Musical”

“Olive Juice Music's Dave End is the best. Inspired equally by early 90s female singer-songwriters and Disney musicals, Dave infuses sexual politics with a sense of fun and tenderness often absent in transgressive music, i.e., ‘queer cupcake loving honesty pop!’” -Nadav Carmel, Phoning It In
