Father John Misty, Late Night Pick: Pearl Jam

Neo-folkie Father John Misty will be at The National tonight. Tix are $23, doors open at 7, show starts at 8 with the opener, comedian Kate Berlant. You don't see comedians opening up for musicians much these days. I believe it happened more often back in the 70's so it's kind of cool and plays into Father John Misty's old school vibe. It also plays into his sometimes humorous lyrics, as evidenced on this favorite of mine, "I'm Writing a Novel":

On Late Night TV tonight, Pearl Jam week continues on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. No more cover tunes, it's time for the real thing as Pearl Jam will perform. And hopefully Jimmy gets Eddie Vedder into a skit or a game show. Late Night is on at 12:35 AM on NBC.
