The folk-tinged Father John Misty goes it alone
CMJ 2013: Father John Misty “Solo”Music Hall of Williamsburg (66 North 6th Street, Brooklyn, New York, NY) Map it $30
We aren't sure the papacy would approve of his antics, but in our eyes, Father John Misty can do no wrong. The invention of former Fleet Foxes' drummer Josh Tillman, Father John croons folk-tinged narratives purportedly born from 'shrooming adventures, peddles Fear Fun-branded one-hitters at his merch table, and is now following in Britney Spears' footsteps with the introduction of his own perfume line, Innocence. Touring non-stop since the release of his debut on Sub Pop last year, the good Father leaves his band behind for tonight's show, which is one of the gems of the CMJ fest. Badge bearers should arrive early, this is certain to be a hot ticket. Experimental comedian Kate Berlant opens.
