Mountain Goats Get Lonely. Solution? Tour!

Well, if that isn't the lamest of play on words. Supporting the latest release, Get Lonely, John Darnielle and company have hit the road to tour in front of their devoted fanbase.



I have never seen him play, but it's an opportunity I wouldn't miss. Never on my hot plate, Mountain Goats are a band whose name catches my eye in every dollar bin, ever obscure blog page, and every old mix that I find in the recesses of my few remaining cassettes and plethora of burned, unmarked discs. His music reminds me of a period in college where I was at my best - during the period, of course, that I fell in love with music journalism. Such a good reason to get drunk on a Tuesday (aside from the fact that it's, well, Tuesday).
