The Mountain Goats to Bring Rootsy Americana Sound to Levon Helm Studio on June 5th
The quartet The Mountain Goats are bringing their rootsy Americana sound to Levon Helm Studios for a not to be missed performance on Friday, June 5th.
Haven’t heard of them? Nippertown hadn’t either until we listened to Anthony da Costa’s cover of their song at a recent Cock ‘n Bull concert and became intrigued.
The Mountain Goats are John Darnielle, Peter Hughes, Jon Wurster, and Matt Douglas. They have been making music together as a quartet for several years. Three of them live in North Carolina and one has moved back to Rochester.
Their songs often seek out dark lairs within which terrible monsters dwell, but their mission is to retrieve the treasure from the dark lair & persuade the terrible monsters inside to seek out the path of redemption. As Axl Rose once memorably asked, in the song “Terrible Monster”: “what’s so terrible about monsters, anyway?” This is the question The Mountain Goats have been doggedly pursuing since 1991.
