In late October 2010, artist Ryan McGinley opened his show at the Ratio 3 Gallery in San Francisco, Calif. He reached out to Christopher Owens, of Girls, to play the event and sure enough, the fellow Bay Area resident showed up with guitar in hand. What ensued was a preview of some of the tracks off Girls' new album, Father, Son, Holy Ghost, along with some still-unreleased tracks, B-sides, and covers. You can watch Owens perform two of the new tunes, "Key to My Heart" and "Back to London," below. The full set, which includes a cover of Skeeter Davis' "End of the World," can be viewed on YouTube.
