Eric, you are a lucky man to have interviewed Father John Misty. He's one of my favorites in music right now, and when you get on his level and see what he's setting out to do with writing in brutally (and often egotistically) honest fashion, it's really just brilliant. Kudos to whoever chose "I Went To The Store One Day" for the online feature, too. Great song. Wish I could see Josh at the Rialto!
Looking for BoomBaby here in Nashville TN ..... Gene G. ... ( Ducklow ) you still out there ? or is your hair Seven years long now ! D & D .... Same yahoo e-mail .
I was at that poison kid frost concert!! Wacky lineup. Who was the teen heart throb?
BRAVO to you people. Keep up the wonderful work. It was thrilling to read this article.

I guess that some folks just wont "get it", which is fine of course. What is less ok is the misrepresentation RE fascist overtones etc though.
Hilarious. Except I'm laughing at you the writer, not deafheaven.
Wunderkind interviews other local wunderkind, writes short, poignant, intelligent article. Thanks for being awesome Katter and Heather.
Great Article !! Looking forward to this !!
Thanks for the memories and revelations. I, too, was raised on Creem. I first saw Gentlemen Afterdark in 1983 at UofA's Louie's Lower Level. I loved every minute of it and was quite intrigued. I still remember some of your song lyrics!
Brian, hope the show went well. I would have loved to be there. Good to know you are still kickin"! I always felt that there should have been a thicker pad on that ceiling corner over the stage at the Jar. I miss your shows.
Still free in Poway,
Brian, Thank You for the bittersweet memories!! You have always been very passionate in whatever you are doing. Please never give up your writing!!
Kudos. This was a good read. Keep playing. Keep writing!
We could have crossed paths so many times and we never did. Amazing story. My favorite line:
Being in Gentlemen Afterdark showed me how easy it was to confuse insecurity with self-belief.

Weird Al rules! Here is a guy that has taken some of the shittiest songs known to man and improved them tenfold by his unique and intelligent approach to them. He has also taken a few songs that didn't suck (for example "Smells Like Teen Spirit" & his kick ass tribute to the Stones in the medley "The Rolling Stones Polka") and made them cool as well in his own right. Let's all hope he lives to be 150 years old and is still spry enough to tour!
Good music from a good dude and it's not adult contemporary! Here's to music that doesn't sound like its from Tucson.
my homeboy is true blue and a lover of his craft[s]....
This is the worst review of an upcoming show I've ever read. You seem to have a problem with DG that centers around them being elusive and on their own page, for better or worse. Why that's a negative thing in your eyes I don't really get. But more importantly, whether you love them or hate them--and it'll be one or the other with these guys--this is an article about an upcoming show that some people would likely have attended if you had just given more information about the band and not badmouthed them for subjective reasons.
They showed up. They played for 75 minutes of nonstop fury. They brought it. Enough said. You lose.
