Weird Owl

Check back for upcoming shows.

Genre: Rock

Band Bio: Retro is theft, current is kitsch, so we reside in the future. Sure we listen to Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band, Love, Donovan, and the 13th Floor Elevators a lot, but our idea is that the frontier of music lies in outer/inner space and the propulsion into and exploration of realms beyond the means of the ordinary "rock band".

Therefore, Weird Owl's heavy guitar and graceful sonic sweeps of the organ are meant to convey distances that are simultaneously galaxies away but also deep within, chugging along with the rhythm section of tight interconnectedness. Along with its heavily symbolic and allegorical lyrics, Weird Owl intends to establish itself as a musical Lewis and Clark--voyaging into the fringe, observing the strange flora and fauna found there, mingling with the natives, and then creating a psychedelic map for all those who have not yet made the journey into the same weird realms.

Consciousness and music are mystically united and to not explore that link is a failure to fully use the powers inherent in music. Would you rather see someone tinker around with dusty old sounds, ignorant of their potential, or would you rather see a full-blown attempt at Wizardry, invoking the dormant forces of sonic frequencies?

Discography
Weird Owl has a self recorded and released four song EP that we give away freely at our shows.
