This is a big one, folks. Guitar genius Loren Connors and some other talented dudes open for San Francisco's Barn Owl, a band I never really expected to see live. Barn Owl is Jon Porras and Evan Caminiti building massive, haunting guitar drones. Huge bottom end sounds coupled with immense, almost overwhelming distortion. The small handful of records and recordings of live shows of these guys make me more than confident that this show will be something very special indeed. Doesn't hurt that it's being held at the lovely Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, an ideal space for this kind of set if Grouper's show there this past summer was any indication.
