Live Review: The Mountain Goats at the Granada 11/19/2009

The Mountain Goats

By Jesseca Bagherpour

Thursday night began with a manic rush from the DayBowBow meeting at Sweetwater in Denton to The Mountain Goats show at the Granada in Dallas. I probably pushed my Cutlass Ciera a bit too hard because I didn’t want to miss seeing Final Fantasy (aka Owen Pallett) once again. He played at Hailey’s in 2007, but I couldn’t go because I was sick and I was determined to catch at least half of his set this time. But unless he only played four songs, I didn’t meet that goal. I didn’t count on the Granada being packed, leaving the spots in the neighborhood where I normally park completely full (I eventually parked in front of Buffalo Exchange, which I assume was all right since they were closed and my car was still there when the show ended).

When I finally walked into the auditorium of the Granada, I could tell the end of Final Fantasy’s set was drawing near. I had a ticket for one of the seated sections, but I stayed glued to the back wall during those two last precious songs(not counting the five he played with the Mountain Goats). For 10 glorious minutes I got to witness Pallett’s brilliance. My eyes never left the stage and the serene smile never left my face as he played “This Lamb Sells Condos” and “Lewis Takes Off His Shirt”. The violin loops and accompanying vocals (I’ve tried to find who is backing him on this tour, but I’m still not certain) sounded perfect. Although not everyone in the audience was impressed, most people were. I hope I get another chance to see him live, because I’m sure a full Final Fantasy set is incredible.

When I finally found my seat, I had a few minutes to relax before The Mountain Goats played. Having never seen the band live, I had no idea what to expect. I thought I was in for a relaxed, low-key evening, which I would have welcomed after the stress of my drive. I thought I would simply watch in rapt attention as the band played, like I did with Pallett. I thought wrong. And I realized it the second the Mountain Goats ran out on stage, Shellac blasting, the audience screaming and applauding. The band was clearly fired up to perform. Continue reading

Rundown: 4/20 to 4/26

20 Apr

I’m not one to complain about the opportunity to see some quality live music, but doesn’t it feel like the calender has been rather hectic since NX35? It’s been one big touring act after another, and countless quality local fare almost every night for over a month now. Like I said, far be it for me to complain about actually having things I want to see, especially when there can be some pretty bleak times around these parts, but man I’m fucking broke. Anyway, this week is loaded yet again with quality and quantity, take a look after the cut. Continue reading

Rundown: 4/13 to 4/19

13 Apr

Sorry this is late, I had kind of a busy day so something had to wait, and this was it. Anyway, it’s going to be a hell of a week in the metroplex, shows galore, and honestly you have no excuse for not going out at least a couple of times this week.

We’re gonna have a few things for you this week, show photos, a couple of interviews, Record Store Day stuff and hopefully it’ll actually all make it on here. Continue reading

Rundown: 4/6 to 4/12

6 Apr

Ah Opening Day I love you, I don’t want to do anything, just stay home and watch grown men get paid to hit a little ball into play, with the outside chance of seeing it actually leave the field of play. Boring? Yes. Awesome? Sometimes. An excuse to drink at noon on a Monday? Yes, but I never really need an excuse for that. I bring this up because baseball is a signal of summertime, which to me means the summer tours are coming, and much like today’s games signal the beginning of what seems like a never ending season, this weeks round of shows feel like a signal of what is ahead in the coming months.
