Final Fantasy with Fan @ Mercury Lounge (09/01/2006)
Final Fantasy and Fan

So, the other day when I mentioned that Basia Bulat was going on tour with Final Fantasy, I thought that actually warranted a separate post, but I was waiting for the right time to do it. Well, when I noticed that Owen (I can call him that because we’re friends) was headlining his first gig at The Bowery Ballroom (with Albertan Cadence Weapon supporting no less), I figured now was as a good a time as any to post about his upcoming tour. There are probably still a few holes in this schedule as I just kind of pieced it together from places here and there.

UPDATE (08/02): I just added a few more dates from culled from BrooklynVegan. Like I said before, I knew there were holes in the sched.

I know Owen has a new record in the works entitled Heartland, which apparently is scheduled for a spring of 2008 release [The Music Slut]. I’d imagine he’ll be debuting some of those songs on this new tour, as He Poos Clouds is already over a year old.
