Casiotone for the Painfully Alone aka a lone Owen Ashworth put on a mesmerizing show at the itty-bitty chapel at Philadelphia's First Unitarian Church. The venue only holds 50 people, no joke. And so we sat, packed in the pews and watched Owen tap away at his keyboards as he made lo-fi musical magic. For those of you unaware, his latest album Vs. Children contains some of the best songs ever written about children having children, emotional and literate lyrics ensue.
Oh and by the way, CFTPA played two back-to-back shows at the chapel. We attended the early one. But guess who attended the late show? None other then SUFJAN STEVENS! (A little bird called Twitter told us so). And to think we missed sitting inches away from that dreamboat by a mere few hours. What have we done to anger the indie rock gods so much??
