Owen is an extremely talented vocalist, guitar player, and sound engineer. He plays for a rock group known as The Everyothers and has a solo project, Owen McCarthy, which he describes as being "less rock n' roll and more poetic." As a 15 year resident to Williamsburg, Owen shared a glimpse of his 11211 experience with me tonight as he rolled up the cables and closed down the back bar at The Trash Bar (where he controls the sound boards 4 nights a week). While making it clear that he does not judge the newcomers/non-artist types of this community, he did seem to reminisce on the times when only artists and musicians roamed the streets and the rent was definitely not "TOO DAMN HIGH!"
