Father John Misty @ Bowery Ballroom, 10/24/2012
Father John Misty

On stage, when he wasn't taking jabs at his musical past, Father John Misty was singing and dancing. Freed from any instrumental duties, Tillman relished the role of frontman. He spent the night performing performance, eager to fill each second between verses with hand gesture, facial expression, and movement. His stage act is a cross between performance art and physical release, but backed by a close-fitting band and a deeply original collection of songs, Tuesday night proved that Father John Misty is hardly a success limited to the recording studio. Much of Fear Fun bounced into life on stage. - [American Songwriter]
Father John Misty (aka Josh Tillman) was in town this week with La Sera and Jeffertitti's Nile (with whom Tillman played drums) for a pair of sold-out NYC shows on 10/23 at Music Hall of Williamsburg and 10/24 at Bowery Ballroom. Pictures from the latter adorn this post. It was Josh Tillman's second live appearance that night after blessing Petty Fest at Webster Hall earlier that evening.

The FJM fun train rolls on, playing Boston tonight (10/25). If you missed the NYC shows, catch Father John Misty on January 14 at Webster Hall with Magic Trick. Tickets are still available.
