Owl City, Mat Kearney and Unwed Sailor

Roseland (map) Northwest
Sun., July 17, 7 p.m. 2011 All Ages

$28

Much like Serpentor, Owl City's Adam Young was created in a lab using extracted DNA from the remains of Attila the Hun, Ivan the Terrible, Vlad the Impaler, and, um, Ben "the Sensitive" Gibbard. This soulless Postal Service karaoke act is responsible for the fluffiest of Jesus-approved pop ballads, "Fireflies" and "Vanilla Twilight" (the latter's title says it all), both of which are inescapable nuggets of disposable pop music with all the staying power, yet none of the irony, of LFO's "Summer Girls." Young's latest is All Things Bright and Beautiful, a dramatic departure from his synth-pop roots that's loaded with creative arrangements and originality. Naw, just kidding, it's the same old crap. Unless you are taking a road trip to Cornerstone in your mom's Taurus, there is no way anyone should be listening to Owl City of Ga'Hoole. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
