Last Night: Father John Misty & Har Mar Superstar at Fitzgerald's

Father John Misty & Har Mar Superstar Fitzgerald's May 24, 2012

"I'm going to be the first to combine sad bastard music and men's fitness, and maintain my integrity in each," said Josh Tillman, fronting Father John Misty, or inhabiting the Father John Misty, last night at Fitzgerald's, right before the band started in on another sad bastard song.

Between Misty and opener Har Mar Superstar, Fitz may have reached its allotted amount of male hip-shaking for the year, or at least this month. Misty's mountain pop and Har Mar's naughty dance-rock and R&B came with enough sass, yes sass, to make the weekend start in earnest.

After all, on White Oak, Thursdays are called "Little Friday" anyhow. Or at least they are to me.
