Bunbury 2015 Must See: Father John Misty

This is going to get weird. Watch this and listen to the lyrics.

I had to fall in love with Jeff Buckley’s cover of “Hallelujah” before I could wrap my brain around Leonard Cohen. Cohen’s style felt unapproachable to this punk kid. His songs were way too slow and employed way too many instruments for me to relate to them. Once my musical pallet was attuned to Cohen, I fell in love with him. But my warm-up to him took years. I will follow a similar process with Father John Misty. My age and experience has only gifted me the good sense to see him now anticipating my future love.

Yeah. Right? I’m not going to say this show will be fun, exactly. I think it will be something worth seeing. Any man that writes “save me white Jesus” in a song is worth watching. Father John Misty plays at 4 on Friday of Bunbury 2015.
