Today's Local Music: We Became Owls

Tamarind Free Jones



We Became Owls is an alternative Americana band from Oakland. Songwriter Andrew Blair and multi-instrumentalist Ross Warner began creating, writing and composing music together in middle school. Now they're joined by upright bassist Doug Keen, vocalist and banjo picker Kelly McFarling and either Andrew Laubacher or Kyle Caprista on drums.



They'll be playing their brand of nouveau Americana folk under the towering trees in the Berkeley hills from 5:30 - 7:30 PM on Thursday, August 6th as part of U.C. Berkeley's summer concert series in the Redwood Grove. Doors open at 5:00 PM, but check for tickets online before you go. These shows frequently sell out.
