ACL liveblogging- Mountain Goats


Sound and Fury made it! Only an hour late, which ain't bad, though it would have been great to see Those Darlins.

Mountain Goats onstage. They look like a band of community college math professors fronted by Steve Carrel, but that's cool. Singer John Darnielle sounds exactly like he does on his 16 albums. He's treating us to his solo set right now. For a confessional songwriter who trades in depressing realism, he has hilarious stage banter.
