John Vanderslice @ the Parish Room 2night!

Is anyone going to the Parish Room tonight for the John Vanderslice show tonight? I'm not a superfan or anything but that dude def has some serious songwriting chops. I'm interested to see how it all translates in the live experience.

For those of you who don't know already, Vanderslice is a member of the band, Mountain Goats, which has a revolving touring line-up. He is mostly known for his championing of analog sounds. He founded an all analog studio, which has been used by some of Austin's biggest heavy-weights including, Spoon and Okkervil River. So tonight I would expect some warm, fuzzy tones and some beautiful throwback singer/songwriter stuff. I don't know about you but that pretty much describes 75% of my favorite music. If you're looking for tickets they are currently still available, and to be honest I don't really see this show selling-out, no offense JV.

So, in addition to seeing John Vanderslice at the Parish tonight you will also have the chance to catch The Tallest Man on Earth in the opening slot. The Tallest Man on Earth is actually one Swedish dude who has a bit of Pitchfork buzz already.

Even though there is BARELY an affiliation with tonight's show and the Mountain Goats I still wanted to include a song by them too because I'm def a fan.
