Get Your Goats

2005_05_11mountainGoats.jpgTonight marks The Mountain Goats’ debut performance in Toronto, and they’re here to support their excellent new album The Sunset Tree. Critical praise has been effusive for the album, which steps away from the storytelling fictions of John Darnielle’s earlier work for a more autobiographical account of an abusive childhood, though dressed up in amazing lyricism and musical arrangements.
Tickets for the show at Lee’s Palace are $11, which is a hell of a deal to see one of the finest songwriters in America. Shearwater and Jeff Hanson support. Doors at 9, show at 9:30.
