Why See Father John Misty?
Bored in the USA?
Tall and handsome, with a stage presence that veers between Nick Cave and Johnny Cash, J. Tillman is bringing his acclaimed incarnation, Father John Misty to a town near. The one time Fleet Foxes drummer has been steadily releasing solo records since 2004, but it was as Father John that things started to make sense. Conceived after a psychedelic desert experience in the desert deserving of Gram Parsons or one of his Laurel Canyon peers, the sound of Father John Misty is part old school country misery, part retro folk and a whole lot of sardonic wit.
His second album as the moody reverend, 'I Love You, Honeybear' was released in February 2015 to massive acclaim, cementing his place in the indie elite with it's fun and insightful lyricism set to loaded harmonies that explore love and life. This new tour is in support of his forthcoming effort Pure Comedy, to be released in April 2017! Do not miss him when he plays The Chicago Theatre in Chicago, IL, Closed May 15, 2017.
Performance date: 15 May 2017
