Memorial Chapel Graced With Guest Appearance in Christopher Owens Video Diary

All right, Admissions Office, you can stop trying to recruit people.  Your job is done.  Christopher Owens has us covered.

As you well remember, former-member-of-the-band-Girls-and-current-solo-artist Christopher Owens romanced a full-capacity audience at Memorial Chapel last Thursday, playing the entirety of his solo debut/mini-rock opera Lysandre as well as a handful of cover songs.  The concert itself was extremely enjoyable, including the opening set by Mara Connor (Wes/Vassar ’13), though nobody could be quite certain what Owens himself thought about the concert, or the audience or atmosphere or mood or time of day— his sub-hour-long performance was incredibly short on stage banter, by which I mean he said “thank you” and nothing else.

Which was fine.  His Cali-beach-rock sound and golden-haired-god image work well with a strong-but-silent attitude.  The music spoke enough for the both of them.
