Father John Misty at ACL 2012 (more by Glen Brown)
Father John Misty (aka former Fleet Foxes drummer Josh Tillman) has been touring continuously and is not letting up. He's about to kick off a summer tour leading up to festivals like Lollapalooza and Osheaga.
That tour doesn't come to Texas, but after taking some time off, he'll do another tour in the fall which does. This tour is being billed as a solo variety show tour and features FJM solo being supported by Brooklyn comedian Kate Berlant every night. That tour hits Dallas on October 28 at House of Blues and Austin on October 29 at Emo's. Tickets for the Dallas show and the Austin show go on sale today (6/28) at 10 AM.
Updated dates are listed, along with FJM's recently-released video for "Funtimes in Babylon," below...

Okkervil River / Diamond Rugs
BrooklynVegan's Hotel Vegan, located at Austin venues Hotel Vegas & Volstead Lounge, ended on Saturday, 3/17/2012, on three stages in partnership with Partisan Records and KF Records, and the new Young One Records who helped us put together the hip hop stage which stage headliner Action Bronson cancelled from last minute from (for medical reasons).
The day, and all four days, ended with special last minute addition Okkervil River who played after Deer Tick/Black Lips/Dead Confederate/Los Lobos super group Diamond Rugs who played after Heartless Bastards (who we already posted one set of pictures of). Other previously posted photo sets from this day include Father John Misty, Field Report, Pond and Emily Wells. Here are the rest of the pics.

Father John Misty @ Hotel Vegan
A talkative and solo and tired Father John Misty (aka J. Tillman, ex-Fleet Foxes) played the big, outdoor stage at Hotel Vegan (aka Hotel Vegas) on the final Saturday of SXSW 2012. The Dallas Observer was there and wrote:
Well, I already had Father John Misty, former drummer for Fleet Foxes, aka J. Tillman, picked out as my best set of the day, when he played one of those hazy, early afternoon Saturday SXSW sets. He's been on a sort of one-man anti-SXSW comedy tour over the last few days, and at Hotel Vegas' outside stage yesterday, he looked and sounded on the verge of breaking. There was his Doritos tirade from Friday, which he apologized for, but didn't have to, then this: "This fest is like the singing Olympics," he said between singing some awfully pretty acoustic songs. "And I have failed you. I've played five sets and each had a hurdle. Today, that hurdle is a truck full of generators... Can you all hear that truck OK?"Hear Ya said:
I was really hoping to hear with him a full band - partly to not have to listen to his ramblings. While I really enjoy his new album, his set was a bit of a bummer. He bitched about the corporate sponsorships, the amount of times he had to play, his name, etc. My job has problems too but I don't sit in front of my clients complaining about them.Damn.
Father John Misty heads out on a tour in May, backed by a full band. That tour will be supported by none other than Har Mar Superstar and hits Austin at the Mohawk on May 26. Tickets for the Texas show are on sale. it will be Har Mar's 5th Mohawk show this year. All tour dates and some more pictures from Hotel Vegan, below...
