John Darnielle (aka The Mountain Goats) played solo at Friday night’s benefit show at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple (May 16, 2008). He took fan suggestions for the setlist which ended up including a lot of older stuff that he usually doesn’t play, as well as a new song called “Wizard Buys A Hat,” which he said is the worst song title he’s ever written. Rock Plaza Central, John Oliver and Dave Hill were also on the bill. More pictures from the evening below….
