Those on John's home coast (the west one) can catch him live this week. Those of us in the east will have to wait for October when he goes on a short tour that hits Mercury Lounge in NYC on October 21 (it's a CMJ show). Joining him on that show, and at least three others, will be The Extra Lens, aka the new project by John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats and Franklin Bruno of the Human Hearts.
Dan Mangan also plays that CMJ show. Tickets go on sale Friday at noon. You can also try to get in with your CMJ badge.
