Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 5

How much do I love Father John Misty? Let me count the ways. Since his earliest solo record under that moniker, Josh Tillman has spoken to me. His persona leads many to wonder how seriously he takes himself. The more that people attempt to unravel him, the further away they get from actually knowing the man behind the music. But the music is amazing and should not be overlooked. He's back at the Observatory for the first of two nights, but Friday is already sold out, so if you want to catch him, tonight is your last chance. Meanwhile, Canadian alt-country band Elliott Brood are at the Casbah, the Movielife plays the Voodoo Room at the House of Blues, and the Mavericks play Humphrey's. For a cool indie show, consider Arkells at Space, or for your Doomtree Collective artist du jour, see P.O.S. at Soda Bar.
