An evening of heavy drone from Barn Owl (San Francisco) and Heavywater (Albuquerque).
We are very grateful to have Barn Owl coming through. Who are Barn Owl? From the beloved and essential record store Aquarius Records: "Not only have Barn Owl become one of our favorite musical projects right here in SF, but they are now serious contenders to the throne of best purveyors of deep and emotional and soul satisfying drone music anywhere in the world... While drone-folk bands have become a somewhat common entity in the last couple years, it's actually rare to discover one whose music exudes soul and spirited passion... There is much reward in patient listening to the music of Barn Owl. Their sound entrances and enthralls, but without letting go the melodies, or forgoing actual songwriting, these are not just chunks of droning sound, these are songs, dark, haunting, lovely mysterious songs." http://www.myspace.com/barnowlband
Heavywater are 1 part Jim Roeber and 1 part William Fowler Collins. Comfortable in Western Swing, Free Improvisation, and electronics, Jim Roeber is an inventive and focused multi-instrumentalist. William Fowler Collins is an improvisational guitarist and electronic composer and on this night the duo will serve up some heavy electronic dronescapes with a side of Southwestern, cinematic improvisation.
