ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – Brian Owens formally from the band sidewinder is from Ferguson. He held a concert in O’Fallon Park in north St. Louis Wednesday evening. The concert was scheduled weeks ago but the irony is that Owens, who is from Belleville now calls Ferguson his home and has for the last 6 years.
He thinks this is a great opportunity to make his community enjoy themselves.
He also feels that what’s happened in his community will wake up the city and begin the dialogue about some tough issues that have been swept under the rug for far too long.
