The Mountain Goats put on an incredible show in Minneapolis last night. Had a brief interlude of Solidarity Forever and There Is Power in a Union with the audience singing along.

With a promise that when he comes back next, he will do all the verses.

I was pretty drunk at the time but I'm pretty sure there were three encores? I went outside to smoke after the second one because setlists were all showing two encores and I heard No Children start and bolted back inside
Hell, four even? May have my order of events mixed up, but I think he left the stage after No Children and seemed to surprise the rest of the band by popping back out after 15 seconds to do Heel Turn 2 and four minutes of, I don't know, improv? I've been to their last two shows here and the finale was definitely more energized—he definitely seemed to be enjoying himself.

It's been out for a few months now, but if you're a Mountain Goats fan and haven't yet listened to The Jordan Lake Sessions, get on that immediately. It's a positively joyous reprisal of a broad swathe of the band's work and, as much as I love the lo-fi aesthetic in a lot of the early albums, they're glorious in hi-fi so long as you have a decent set of speakers.

Volumes 1 and 2 are out now, 3 and 4 are recorded and yet to release.
