The Mountain Goats & Kaki King @ Webster Hall – NYC – pics & selists (from both NY shows)

words and photos by Faith-Ann Young

Mountain Goats

You know who I’d like to see duel? Kaki King vs. Gabriela from Rodrigo y Gabriela. just a random thought.

Anyway, Sunday night, Kaki King closed out almost a year of touring. Though she was visibly tired, relieved and even teary-eyed at times, Kaki cathartically plucked, strummed, and beat her long-nailed fingers over her guitar…ferociously, yet seemingly effortlessly. In the first 5 minutes, she proved worthy of Rolling Stone’s label of one of the 100 best guitar players of all time. Plus, with the help of her band, (a feirce bassist/guitarist, a fiercer drummer, a synth dude, and a guy who plays an quirky electronic valve instrument that looks like a bong), she cohesively melded punk rock, acoustic folk, and shoegaze throughout the set. (set list in pictures below)

Kaki King

How much is a Mountain Goats show worth? One chick in the front spent $500 to fly from Indiana just to see The Mountain Goats perform in NY this weekend (Saturday at Music Hall of Williamsburg and Sunday at Webster Hall) (not to mention accomodations and concert tickets)….pretty impressive. Anyway, Mountain Goats entered the stage to “December 63 (Oh What A Night).” In minutes, John Darnielle was full of sweat and energy, chatting with his usual easy banter, making his fans both clap, laugh and cry. Kaki came back on to play a few songs mid-set, first on guitar, and then on what looked like an electronic autoharp….To prove how close they had gotten during the tour, at the end of set, the whole Kaki crew came out and danced onstage alongside the goats……Hugged, cried – it was good (if emotional) night…
