I’m really feeling The Bowerbirds right now. They have the distinct honor of being the opening band for The Mountain Goats, the first tMG show I’d ever gone to.

"Maybe it’s the things I never learned how to do? Maybe it’s the things I learned to do real well? Maybe it’s the Irish whiskey I like to drink? Maybe it’s the California Zinfandel? But I think something’s wrong with me. I think somethings glued down wrong maybe permanently."

Spinning the Mountain Goats’ “We Shall All Be Healed” LP, it works so well with the windows open, spring air, etc.

this morning

Rob’s blasting Marie Stern while he’s in the shower.  I’m playing the Mountain Goats and having coffee.  

Going to get breakfast then check out some houses in South Philly.  Meh, this grown up thing isn’t so damn terrible.  


thethingsyouvegotcoming:

seeing john darnielle on my dash is really weirding me out in ways i cant quite put into words

its like the pope showing up halfway through mass like “hey guys, what’s up? who wants to talk about dragons?”

Open Itunes, type “Mountain Goats, Alpha” into the search box.  Yep, there’s your night.  You’re welcome.

Spinning Nite Jewel.  

This is one of my favorite albums of last year. So perfect. 

You can see my the Mountain Goats NO CHILDREN record mat under this amazingly colored LP.

Spinning the Mountain Goats “All Eternals Deck.”  

I think the jury is back on this being a modern classic… Right? It’s gotta be right?

"your new found interest in the Mountain Goats is such a boner popper for me!"

the Mountain Goats

The show last night was amazing! The band in top form for sure!

It was great to met Trudy even briefly.

After the show, I got to meet John from the Mountain Goats, was crazy nervous, got a picture with him. He told l me that I have “amazing hair!”

My boss/hair stylist is gonna be excited bout that.
