Father John Misty @ Bowery Ballroom, 2/14/2015

To watch Father John Misty live is to be entertained. My fellow crowdsmen were all singing along, flush with smiles, too entranced to even makeout with each other–at least not excessively, thank God. His voice is better than you even thought, and it just seems to come out of his mouth, like he’s not even singing. He’s a showman who slings the mic-stand over his head and ends most numbers on his knees. For “Chateau Lobby #4″ he brought out a trumpet player in full mariachi get-up. His dance moves are goofy and make you laugh, but actually impressive–skinny boy can shake his bones! Which makes sense for his whole persona: Half in-jest, half-devastating. At one point, a pink balloon from the crowd with the words “I love you” and a couple teddy bears on it floated to the stage, and Misty held it faux-sentimentally. -[NY Observer]

Father John Misty wrapped up his NYC visit with a show, appropriately, on Valentine’s Day at Bowery Ballroom. Like Rough Trade earlier in the week, it was sold out, more packed than usual with more than your average number of fans seeking tickets outside. Guy Blakeslee opened again as well. Also like his other full-band show, Josh Tillman was in full-on entertainer mode with the crowd lapping it up. Pictures and setlist are in this post.

Father John Misty will be on tour this summer, and his next NYC show will be at Central Park Summerstage on August 5 with Angel Olsen and Summer Moon. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (2/20) at noon but you can get them early with the BrooklynVegan presale that starts Wednesday (2/18) at noon. Check back Wednesday morning for the presale password.
