“Is This a Christian Band?” Father John Misty 9/28
It’s pre heat-wave weather. A bunch of “too cool” kids gather around on Lower Sproul, smoking cigarettes and tapping their feet to some underground funky band. This week it’s Father John Misty – a folky, psychedelic singer that bares some resemblance to the Fleet Foxes on a mild form of acid. This is because J Tillman a.k.a. “Father John Misty,” was also in Fleet Foxes! Cool Cool. Anyway, I was excited to attend. I love SUPERB’s concert series so this was a treat as I ate my falafel sandwich and listened to the music. The band was kick ass considering they were battling the CAL Band playing on Upper Sproul – The effeminate booty shaking consistent to that of Devendra Banhart definitely added to the mix, and proved that this was INDEED not a Christian band. But don’t be fooled by the sweet melodic tunes and smooth grooves. It distracts you from the lyrics; the songs discuss issues such as role-playing and S&M tendencies as heard in “Nancy From Now On,” and take a macabre turn in “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings,” his most popular song which played last. Definitely had the good flow between chillin’ and engaging, as J Tillman went from his soft singing to jumping off of the stage and climbing into a tree. A great show to watch, a definite band to get familiar with.
