UPCOMING: The Mountain Goats @ Majestic, 12 June

You know that song that makes you laugh and cry at the very same time? The perfect musical definition of "bittersweet"? The Mountain Goats are the distinguished owners of one of those songs for me. The video for it is at the bottom of this post: still gives me chills, but it misses a little something without me "singing" along at the top of my voice. And now I get to see them sing it with my own ears! Think I can handle it? I have my doubts...but I don't think they'll mind if I laugh-cry.

The Mountain Goats have announced a run of summer tour dates beginning June 3 at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. John Darnielle and Peter Hughes will tour as a duo for the first time since 2007, and all of the shows will be all-ages. The Baptist Generals will open, and a full list of dates is below.

Darnielle offered more details on his website:
Peter and I toured our asses off back in the pre-trio days, but that was before our ascent to the absolute upper echelon of global media saturation. We are pleased to report that a year-plus worth of talking about touring the Mountain Goats in alternate configurations to all-ages rooms is yielding its first fruits this June, in the form of the TUTTLINGEN WARRIORS TOUR 2013, whose name is an inside joke, I'll tell you about it between songs at some point during the tour, I have too much else still to cover here to get into it right now.
