From the New Yorker to Nerve, John Darnielle sure has been getting a lot of press lately. And for good reason: critics agree that his latest album, The Sunset Tree, is great. So, when he's playing at Logan Square Auditorium with his Mountain Goats Friday night, you know you should be there to watch. The details are in Slowdown. Just don't forget to holler for his classic paean to wishful thinking, "Cubs in Five."
