One Mountain Goat Amongst a Sea of Dawgs : John Darnielle at Meany Hall


There’s something about hanging out on college campuses that just makes you feel smart. Smart and a bit more OK with the fact you’ve been wearing pajama pants for the past three days straight.

Regardless of your preconceived affection (or dislike) of higher learning settings, tonight’s one night we wholeheartedly recommend bypassing Earl’s on the Ave and spending time in a UW building.

The reason: Indie Rock’s poet laureate John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats will be playing Meany Hall with Tiny Vipers.

Darnielle will bring his lo-fi narrative-driven folk as a solo act tonight, though we expect to hear plenty of songs and stories from the bands, most notably the M. Goats, that have spread his hyper-literate lyrics through venues, iPods and dorm rooms across the globe.
