Father John Misty, Kate Berlant
Fri., Oct. 25, 8:30 p.m. 2013
Before he was a Fleet Fox, Josh Tillman wrote and recorded several very good records of solemn, somewhat removed Americana wonder. Last year, with his Fox run done, he released his eclectic debut as Father John Misty, a self-aggrandizing if ridiculous moniker that illustrates the cult of personality he's shaped. An antagonistic frontman who offers his opinions, jokes and stories with as much gusto as his songs, he sometimes suggests a snake oil salesman drunk on his own medicine. With comedian Kate Berlant.
