Currently Spinning #16: Father John Misty at Foellinger Auditorium

I’ve been known to travel long distances to see acts that I love, and Father John Misty is no exception to that. One Sunday evening in April, we headed west to Champagne-Urbana, Illinois to take in a show. As expected, the show did not disappoint. His stage presence was dramatic and theatrical, but not in a bad way. It really just added to the character and persona that Josh Tillman has created in his Misty alter-ego. If you’re a Misty fan, I would 100% recommend seeing him live.

The fog machines and lighting really added to the ambiance.
