The Mountain Goats & John Vanderslice: Gone Primitive
March 27 - March 25, 2009
John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats and John Vanderslice, in their own words: "We are going to light out for the Territories in a van with two acoustic guitars, some notebooks, and a pouch full of charms against ill omen. We are going to get elemental. We are going to stomp our feet and hammer at the strings until we get what we want from them. We, a couple of guys named John, are going to tour, is what we're going to do. We're going to stand alone onstage and play our guitars and sing old songs & new, and then we'll probably play together. We are going to sit side by side with our acoustic guitars like two out of the five guys on the Five Man Acoustical Jam album, only with fewer Tesla songs. Because the whole point of playing an acoustic guitar is not to unplug. It's to get raw and draw blood. Bring along some fresh bandages and we'll see you there!"
