Live Concert Review: Father John Misty at Mercury Lounge

Live Concert Review: Father John Misty at Mercury LoungeIf there was ever a concert that felt like a celebration of music rather than a band just going through the motions, the Father John Misty show at Mercury Lounge was that concert.

The opener even ran long but it seemed like no one cared, that’s probably because former Fleet Foxes drummer, J. Tillman, was on drums the whole time.

Father John Misty has been touring for quite sometime in honor of their new album, Fear Fun, but looked no worse for wear. Tillman’s vocals were on point and the sellout crowd at Mercury Lounge was loving every minute of the show.

You can tell Tillman is from a different era, an old school rocker who just loves music. According to Jambands.com, Tillman also did a 5 p.m. show at the Ace Hotel in New York before the night even got started. So he pretty much was playing all day long, from the Ace Hotel to drums for the opener, Har Mar Superstar, and rocking the stage with his band.

Tickets to the show were only $14 but you got your money’s worth for every penny.

Father John Misty has actually added tour dates through the middle of July. Definitely catch one of them for a music experience you won’t regret.
