Owen and the Eyeballs is the name given to the illustration supergroup comprising Jim Stoten, Andrew Rae, Nick White, and Owen Gildersleeve. For the first and last date of their 2012 World Tour, the band have travelled to Brooklyn to perform at the closing party of illustrator Mike Perry’s community exhibition and event space ‘Wondering Around Wandering’. Before the evening’s performance, the group will be holding a costume and instrument making workshop. More information is available on the WAW project site.
