For this edition of The FreeP Show, we invited one of Mankato's most ubiquitous musicians — Dave "Ocho" O'Connell — to play a short set in the newsroom.
In addition to hosting karaoke nights and performing solo, Ocho is also a member of a Nirvana tribute band, Near-Vana, and the pop-rock trio The Full Setup. Upcoming shows for Ocho include The Full Setup (with the Union Suits) at 10 p.m. on Saturday at the What's Up Lounge and Near-Vana playing unplugged at the Midtown Tavern on March 21.
For his newsroom performance, Ocho's set list incudes: "Now That You Mention It," "Both" and "Fall Right in my Lap."
