Mountain Goats Extravaganza
Fri, 19 Dec 2008
So went to the Mountain Goats on Wednesday night and it was nothing short of awesome.
Started out with a sweet awesome satay chicken pita felafel at Fatimas which is pretty much my crack/cocaine/heroine of going to Auckland. And proceeded to drink and enjoy my all time favourite band fronted by the amazing John Darnielle who, along with the equally great Peter Hughes and their drummer Jon Wurster, played several personal favourites including The Recognition Song, You or Your Memory and of course, No Children which the crowd just screams for every time.
Even better part about the evening afterwards was getting to talk to John and Peter afterwards, snapped some photos, shook hands and receiving hugs (as John no longer shakes hands as he jokes the last time he did so, he got the flu).
A totally awesome night and well worth any future bad karma.
