Owen Added to WAMFEST Lineup, May 7th at 6 pm in Hartman Lounge, sponsored by The Musicians’ Guild!


Owen
just joined WAMFEST 2011’s lineup on Saturday, May 7th for a 6 pm show sponsored by The Musicians’ Guild. Growing up in a musical household and finding fame through family band Cap’n Jazz, Mike Kinsella moved on to solo project Owen in which he composes all the music, plays all the instruments and writes all the lyrics.  Combining catchy vocal riffs with detailed, impressive guitar lines and multi-layered instrumentation, Owen finds a sweet mix of upbeat pop and pretty folk with a touch of rock.  His lyrics not only reference multiple literary greats, like Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Raymond Carver, but are also thoughtful, beautiful poetry on their own.  The conversation and performance will be hosted by Wesley Stace/John Wesley Harding.

  1. First off, well done booking Owen, he is incredible, a perfect combination of cerebral and ethereal. I just have a few questions:

    1) is this open to the public (i.e not students of Fairleigh Dickinson?)
    2) where on campus is the Owen show to be?
    3) due to the fact that I haven’t been bombarded by “CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS!” signs and your extensive sponsor list, I’m assuming that this show is free. Am I wrong in this assumption?
