Owl City Concert
If you’re into electro-pop music, want to hear music described as “dream pop”, “power pop”, “synth-pop” and more categories I’ve never heard of, or if you just can’t get the 2009 hit “Fireflies” out of your head, you may be interested to know that Owl City will be performing downtown at DAR Constitution Hall on Thursday, April 22, at 6:00 pm. The show will also feature Lights, an award-winning Canadian singer/songwriter, and Paper Route, an American indie band that hails from Nashville.
Owl City is Adam Young–a 23-year-old who started a disco-electronic influenced music project in his parent’s basement in southern Minnesota. He started out advertising his music on MySpace, but quickly gained success as a record-label artist. His song “Fireflies” has been a #1 hit on Billboard twice, and more of the dream-like songs from his new album “Ocean Eyes” are sure to gain a following. Owl City has been heavily compared (with mixed reactions) to Postal Service, the electronic indie band formed by the vocalist of Death Cab for Cutie.
DAR Constitution Hall is a historic 3,200-seat auditorium, which was acoustically designed to be perfect for opera and classical performers. It is a close contender with the Kennedy Center for being DC’s finest historic music venue.
Tickets sell for as little as $18.50 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster. Call Constitution Hall at 202-628-4780 for event information.
