Mountain Goats & Wombat

From Sound Fix in Brooklyn.

A long time in the making, the Sound Fix Cafe is finally set to reopen its doors on Friday night, May 11, and we're going to kick things off with a super bang when John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats comes to town for a special, one-night in-store performance! The new cafe will be practically unrecognizable from the old one, with a new bar, stage and sound system as well as new floors, lighting and furniture. Nearly three years ago to the day, Darnielle played at the opening of the Sound Fix record shop; now he will be on hand to usher in this exciting new phase of the Williamsburg cafe/bar/record store.
The Cafe was orginally supposed to re-open on April 26th with an appearance by Deerhunter. The Mountain Goats are also playing May 5th at Local 506 in Chapel Hill, NC.

Yes, it is wombat, or vombatus ursinus. The wombat is a marsupial and its diet tends to upset Australian gardeners.

Chapel Hill is a state of mind. We are all Chapel Hillians. Especially after 9-11 or something. Go Tar Heels and Polvo!
