After playing Kings Theatre, Father John Misty moved his grandiose 'Pure Comedy' tour -- lights, string section and all -- to Brooklyn Steel for two shows with Adam Green opening. While the visuals were just a little scaled-down from what Kings got, the first of those (5/11) was almost an identical setlist, starting with a big chunk of his new album before heading into older material, and then back for more new songs in the encore. Also like at Kings, Josh Tillman kept banter to a minimum, letting his songs speak for themselves.

We'll have pictures from Brooklyn Steel night 2 soon but check out night 1 in the gallery above, and the setlist below.
