Philadelphia local singer-songwriter McGowan is re-locating to the west coast to further his music career but not before giving his favorite college hot spot, Cabrini one last Hoorah. He drew a moderate crowd during Tuesday night’s heavy storm.

McGowan just recently finished a year long tour with Australian performer Ben Lee. The tour spanned the United States and carried over into Australia. McGowan is not resting on his laurels though.

“The next tour kicks off the middle of next week,” McGowan said about the next leg of the tour in which California rock band Phantom Planet has been added to the tour bill

Fans in the Cabrini College theatre on Tuesday night were privy to McGowan’s last small local show in the area until the tour returns to the Theatre of the Living Arts on November 9th.

“Since high school I’ve been performing.” McGowan said, “I’ve been writing songs since basically I could bang on pillows.”

Though recording industry personnel have approached him, McGowan’s been taking it in stride.

“I’m kind of just biding my time and enjoying it as I go. I haven’t really been pushing anything,” McGowan said. “But every now and then I do get a record exec. who will give me ‘you’re doing a good job kid, keep it up,’ type of thing.”

CDs and stickers reading ‘who the hell is McGowan’ were available along with a sign-up sheet for his mailing list.
