If you listened to the sounds of the indie/emo underground any time from the mid-90s to present, you probably know who Mike Kinsella is. Founding member of seminal post-hardcore band Cap’n Jazz, sonic adventurer in Joan of Arc, Maritime, Owls and so many more. Since 2001 or so, he’s been the solo introspective songwriter performing under the Owen banner, and later this month, Kinsella takes Owen on a short run of east coast dates, stopping at the First Unitarian Church on Thursday, March 21st.
This week we have your chance to win a pair of tickets, plus a vinyl copy of Owen’s 2011 release Ghost Town. Just tell us your favorite non-Owen Kinsella project in the comments, and we’ll announce a winner on Thursday afternoon. Ground rules: you have to leave your first and last name, and you have to enter an email where we can contact you if you win (the e-mail address will not be made public). To get you in the mood, here’s Owen performing “Too Many Moons” for Dickies’ YouTube channel.
