Young Man Plays the Early Show Tomorrow Night

November 8th, 2011

Like many before him, Colin Caulfield got his start on the Internet. While still in college, he posted a wide range of covers on YouTube and people began to take notice. One of them was Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox, who liked Caulfield’s version of “Rainwater Cassette Exchange” better than his own band’s. Eventually Caulfield signed with Frenchkiss Records and last year released the heartfelt EP, Boy, under the name Young Man. The band’s first LP, Ideas of Distance, followed this year. Originally a drummer, Caulfield now sings and plays guitar and performs live with a full band, which you can see when Young Man (above, doing “Just a Growin’” for Daytrotter) plays the early show tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge.
