Show Preview: Mountain Goats @ Emos (12.5)

Date Wednesday, December 5th
Location Emos
Doors 9:00 PM
Tickets $18 from Emos

In search for your favorite hyper-literate performer? Well, you can find John Darnielle and his band, The Mountain Goats, at Emos on Wednesday night.  John and friends just released Transcendental Youth via his current label, Merge Records.  While the band can probably be considered to have sort of a cult following, I personally feel that Darnielle is an underrated lyricist (more to my liking than a certain Mr. Meloy).  Accompanying the group as openers will be Matthew E. White, which, according to the stuff I’ve listened to, should be quite an extravagant affair.  This is one of those shows that might have fallen off people’s radars, but if you miss out on it, you’re going to have to hear from your friends how incredible the evening was.
