The Mountain Goats
The Mountain Goats’ latest release, “All Eternals Deck”, finds the indie rock darlings crafting simple, enjoyable, and well produced songs around the John Darnielle’s brilliant lyrical work. (Yes, brilliant; the New Yorker went so far as to rate Darnielle’s songwriting talents alongside those of our hometown hero from The Hold Steady, Craig Finn.) Tonight at the Varsity, the band not only follow-up on a recent performance on the “Late Show with David Letterman”, but also have a tour path that leads to a slot at Lollapalooza. Darnielle and the rest of the Goats take the stage after Communist Daughter (brilliant song smiths in their own right) tonight at 8 p.m. For more information, visit http://www.varsitytheater.org .
