Don't Fear Fun, it's Father John Misty

Whose idea was it to go there then? It was fine, although the drinks were expensive from memory.

Main Set:
I Love You, Honeybear

Encore 1:
Strange Encounter
True Affection
Only Son of the Ladies Man
When You're Smiling and Astride Me
The Night Josh Tillman Came to Our Apartment
Writing a Novel
Misty's Nightmares
Chateau Lobby
Nancy from Now On
Nothing Good Ever Happens at the Goddamn Thirsty Crow
This Is Sally Hatchet
The Ideal Husband
Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings
Fun Times in Babylon
Now I'm Learning to Love the War
Holy Shit

Encore 2:
Bored in the U.S.A.
I'm Your Man
Every Man Needs a Companion

So the main set was one song. They came out, played the title track, and then thanked us and walked off as an April Fool's Day prank. It was a legitimate encore break, the house lights went up and they played a song over the PA and everything. He later said, "If I had it my way we'd have been off for like 25 minutes."

The show was awesome. He wore a ridiculous hat for the first half that was some combination of a witch's hat and a pilgrim's hat. The band is great and he's completely game for every song. It took some warming up but the crowd was really into it by the end.

He was surprisingly lacking in the crowd banter for a while, but after Babylon he paused the show for a "Q&A session" that was funny. When they came back out for the "second" encore he said, "My promoter is back there telling me I can't go out here, my contract's up. But I said, 'No, I've got to do it.' So I invented ... the encore. Hell, it says it right here on the setlist. And right there, there's a few of my big hits, which strangely we haven't played." He also introduced the Cohen cover by saying, "Who is a fan of Leonard Cohen? (applause) Not anymore!"

The crowd participation in Bored in the USA was awesome and unexpected. The laugh track isn't in the live show, but everyone did it for him. I think it was aided by him fucking up the first Jesus line, by getting caught between President and white and yelling "fuck."

Was that the first time you'd seen him? Such an entertaining show. That's pretty much a perfect setlist tok, all my favourites.

I'll also say the highlights of the show were Thirsty Crow and Ideal Husband.

Wow I disagree with you so much. You've got two of my three favourite songs on the new album ranked 10 and 11 (what don't you like about them??) and This is Sally Hatchet is my favourite song of his.

The Ideal Husband fucking rules though.

I should say that I like all the songs on the new album, so I'm not trying to hate on them. That said, I like the idea of True Affection, and it'd be a fascinating direction for him to go, but the song doesn't go anywhere. There's a first verse, a sort-of-chorus, and then ... it meanders for a while, repeats the first verse and ends. And with Astride Me, it just feels like he sort of punted where the chorus should be.

I have the same problem with this album that I had with the first one, some songs are just such a fucking slog to get through. There are some really great moments and then there are songs with this slow, lush, serious instrumentation and overwrought lyrics and his vocals aren't enough to make them enjoyable. Bored in the USA is a perfect example. It feels like it lasts about 10 minutes.

That said really hope he tours here again soon. Seen him two or three times and he's fucking amazing.

I would have True Affection and Strange Encounter right at the top. Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings is easily the highlight of Fear Fun for me.

I tend to agree with Cobbler on Tillman's music. I love his lyrics, but sometimes his music is so overwrought I feel like I should be saluting as I listen. He should ghostwrite the next Fleet Foxes album for Robin so we can be spared more lyrics about trees, beards and forest nymphs or whatever.

I remember being really drunk and going on long rants here about how much I hated the Fleet Foxes second album even though I never actually listened to it. What year was that? I should stop drinking.

I have never got into the Fleet Foxes. The songs I heard in DI did nothing for me and I've not gone beyond that.

The FF debut is one of the best albums of the 2000s, IMO: beautifully constructed and unique sounding despite belonging to a subgenre that was pretty heavily populated at the time. I haven't been able to get into Helplessness Blues all that much, though, despite repeated efforts.
