#MFOY & IndoorShoes & Downwrite Present: ---- MIKE KINSELLA (performing as Owen) http://www.facebook.com/mybandowen Kinsella is one of the dominant and influential figures in the Chicago indie scene, having also led the band American Football, and played in the bands Cap'n Jazz, Joan of Arc and Owls (all with his brother Tim). Owen is known for its soft melodies, complex acoustics, combining lead acoustics with keyboard and other guitars, plaintive vocals and on occasions adding drums. It can be seen as a natural progression for Kinsella, from the progressive and experimental severity of Joan of Arc via the more melodic-progressive American Football. BOB NANNA (performing as Braid) http://www.facebook.com/braidcentral In the 1990's musical landscape, Champaign-Urbana, Illinois' Braid carved a place for themselves that continues to resonate. Armed with a much deserved reputation as a touring band, their dual guitar and vocal assault coupled with a math-rockesque rhythm section earned them a legion of fans and a popularity that continues to grow over a decade later. with very special guests: MARK ROSE http://www.facebook.com/markrosemusic Mark Rose is a singer/songwriter from Chicago, IL who plays his own blend of R&B infused rock and pop.
