Former Fleet Foxes drummer Joshua Tillman bring his usual sardonic touch and penchant for ‘70s folk, country and pop to his latest album under the guise of his alter-ego, Father John Misty. Pure Comedy is a cynical examination of overriding the futility of modern life, set against lush, kaleidoscopic arrangements that only serve to heighten the impact of Tillman's world-weary lyricism. If the apocalypse is nigh, at least the human race will have some grandiose exit music. Vampire Weekend drummer Chris Tomson's solo project Dams of the West supports.

I went to the show last night and was worth every penny!!! The warm up bands were pretty good and then the main act went on around 8:45. Last night he finished the show with a cover of "Closer" by NIN and was AMAZING!!! I recommend getting there early and checking out one of the great Asian restaurants like Agami. Of course after the show there's no better spot than Green Mill...remember it's cash only!
