John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats is currently on a book tour in support of the paperback release of his 2017 book Universal Harvester. He'll wrap things up in NYC, appearing at the March edition of Wesley Stace's variety show Cabinet of Wonders which happens at City Winery on March 9 and also features Nellie McKay (who has a new LP out soon), David Cross, Dave Hill, David Nagler, James Gleick and more. Tickets are on sale.

In related news, this week's edition of the "I Only Listen to the Mountain Goats" podcast features Julian Koster of The Music Tapes covering "Jeff Davis Country Blues" and you can listen to that below.
