We are honored that epic experimentalists Barn Owl will bring their dark desert rock to our Boing Boing: Ingenuity live event in San Francisco on August 18. The group will just be returning home from a tour of Australia and preparing for shows in Sweden, Denmark, Poland, and Germany. (Tour dates here.)
