Most night owls are nuisances or damn creepy. Barn Owl seems to fit into the latter category. The San Francisco band’s guitar tone is smoky and ethereal and the pace is slow and ominous, making their name one of the most spot on monikers for a band. Barn Owl are a mysterious project from some, mysterious figures. Come out and meditate on the enigma at the Issue Project Room in Brooklyn on Nov. 18 at 8 p.m. $10.
