THE MOUNTAIN GOATS W/ PATRICK DETHLEFS
Drop-off Productions Presents a standout show for October when The Mountain Goats (Duo) and Patrick Dethlefs deliver an evening of live music featuring the beautiful, unnerving, indie folk sound of these noted acts. The Mountain Goats (Duo) are John Darnielle and Peter Hughes. With a catalog spanning more than 600 songs, the duo performs songs that eulogize murdered reggae performers and long-AWOL meth casualties; Darnielle’s writing stands out for its great and curious empathy. This will be the first Duo show in Fort Collins. Joining The Mountain Goats (Duo) will be Denver-based singer-songwriter Patrick Dethlefs. Dethlef’s songwriting crests like a humble Townes Van Zandt, innocent of his own haunting melodies and lyricism. He offers folk Americana that shows effortless sincerity at a time when many acts strive purposefully to revive the stripped-down feel of a musical history long past. All ages show. Downtown Artery, October 26, $25.
