Time Out says

The crackling aura surrounding Father John Misty extends beyond his past life as a Fleet Foxes member to the music he’s now releasing as a solo artist. His 2012 Sub Pop debut, Fear Fun, featured soaring, soulful folk-rock lysergically spiked with energy and intelligence. This year's Pure Comedy is a sometimes-brutal look at modern life that should provide plenty of fodder for Misty’s scenery-chewing live show. Opening this gig is Brooklyn-via-Alabama song man Matthew Houck, a.k.a. Phosphorescent; show up early to catch his heartbreaking yet hopeful rendition of Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land."
