Father John Misty is not here to hear your confession. He is, however, here to entertain you, and is playing this weekend at the Sasquatch! Music Festival. The former Fleet Foxes’ drummer will be reconnecting with his Pacific Northwest friends as he strums his guitar and tells gloomy stories in an elegant fashion, including “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings.”
Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
