Barn Owl, David Daniell, Scott Tuma, High Aura'd Early Warnings (Music) The List (Music) Soundboard

When: Sun., Nov. 21, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $10
You pick up a record by a band called Barn Owl and you expect twangy, harmless Americana—if you look up "Barn Owl" on MySpace, in fact, you will indeed find a twangy, harmless Americana group called the Barn Owl Band (along with bands called Barn Owl that make folk punk, Mogwai-style postrock, and cerebral free jazz). The one we're talking about here is the Barn Owl from San Francisco, who call themselves "Psychedelic/Trance/Blues," and the only noticeable twang on their recent Ancestral Star (Thrill Jockey) is the echoing arpeggiated acoustic guitar that holds down "Cavern Hymn." The rest of the album is swirling psych ambience made up of less easily identified sounds—I can definitely pick out guitar feedback and heavily treated strings—and it unfolds unhurriedly and often beautifully. David Daniell, Scott Tuma, and High Aura'd open. —Miles Raymer
