Father John Misty

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. Brooklyn singer-songwriter Weyes Blood opens the show.

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!
