Tickets for Ohio Wesleyan’s ‘2017 Bishop Bash’ Concert on Sale Now
DELAWARE, Ohio – The Mowgli’s have been described as “the quintessential California band” and their music as “a joyous revival of rock ’n’ roll, a twisting indie-folk dance, and a heartfelt protest ballad.”
The band, whose hits include “I’m Good,” will headline Ohio Wesleyan University’s 2017 Bishop Bash at 7 p.m. April 1 inside Gordon Field House, 105 S. Sandusky St., Delaware. Fellow indie band Never Shout Never will kick off the annual OWU spring concert.
Katie Jayne Earl, one of The Mowgli’s lead vocalists, recently told writer Anika Raju that concert-goers should expect a “well-rehearsed, well-rested, high-energy band” performing the group’s signature music with a message.
“We hope our music not only brings [listeners] joy, but that it lets them know there is hope in the world and that they are not alone,” Earl said. “We hope there is a sense of unity in our music. Music has the power to bring people together.”
The band’s latest album, “Where’d Your Weekend Go?”, was released in September. It includes “Automatic,” “Bad Thing,” and “Spiderweb.”
Opening act Never Shout Never began as the one-man band of Christofer Drew, who built a fan base through online postings of “his bright, soul-baring music.” to the Internet. Now a five-person group, Never Shout Never released its seventh studio album, “Black Cat,” in 2015.
