    To start off, this is going to be a great night overall! We have been working very hard on what we are about to share with you, and are very proud of it. Some details for the night: Cover charge at the door is $5. 10th Street Live serves GREAT FOOD and has a BAR and a great SOUND SYSTEM for the bands, so don't be afraid you will be at a show that is missing something. Everything you need is there! Great food, drinks, and music! Copies of the NEW ALBUM "Turning the Triad" will be on sale for $10. Please pick up a copy, you will be thankful that you did! The lineup of the night's music is going to be: 8:15pm: Steve Kelly of the Battle Begun (http://www.facebook.com/thebattlebegun) 9:15pm: Wilson-N-Main (http://www.facebook.com/wilsonnmain) 10pm: The Knight Owls (you know are URL, but for laughs: http://www.facebook.com/theknightowlsmusic) When we perform our set, which will be the tracks off the new album in order, we are going to give you the experience actually listening to the album. As soon we start, and until the end, we won't talk between songs. We're going to let the songs flow together the exact same way they do on the album. With hope, you transcend above this reality for a little bit as we intend. SO PLEASE, Save the date, share this page, invite your friends, and come and celebrate the release of our sophomore album, "Turning the Triad".

“I first met Knight Owls at Checkstock 2009. I was asked to record the band. I didn't know it would be more than a few songs. However they were well prepared, and the whole album was shaped up quickly. Only the vocals were overdubbed,(studio has no vocal booth). I think the guitar work is what gives this band its edge. My gut feeling is Matt going to be well known among the top rock guitar players. ”
