Mountain Goats - Shepherd’s Bush Empire
Great show. Played as a stripped back duo for the most part (a brief solo segment was thrown in, and some backing singers joined them for a couple of songs). Obviously quite a Goths heavy set, but plenty of other “hits” thrown in for good measure. New Year and No Children were wonderfully raucous, as you would expect. Darnielle on especially good form with the anecdotes and bantz. My dad loved it (his first time seeing them), which was nice.
