The Mountain Goats, Anonymous 4, and Owen Pallett to perform at the Ecstatic Music Festival

The Mountain Goats

As a part of March’s Ecstatic Music Festival, lo-fi gods the Mountain Goats will be putting on a surely incredible show with medievalist, female a capella group Anonymous 4. Also joining the team on stage will be Owen Pallett a.k.a. Final Fantasy taking up the guitar. On the Mountain Goats website, frontman John Darnielle writes that “stoked’ won’t take an intensifier deep enough to explain how I feel about this show”.

If the combination of these two polar energies wasn’t intriguing enough, the team-up is going to be debuting songs from the upcoming Mountain Goats release Transcendental Youth. According to Darnielle, the songs are set up for piano, guitar, and vocals. The Mountain Goats will also apparently be doing their own set to start the show on March 24 at New York City’s Merkin Concert Hall.
