Mark Kozelek

When: Sat., Feb. 9, 8 p.m. 2013


Mark Kozelek is well known for treating his audience like absolute shit. But the abuse is definitely worth tolerating—for the uninitiated, Kozelek is the brains behind Red House Painters and Sun Kil Moon, two musically different but evenly brilliant vehicles for Kozelek's gorgeous pop dirges. Two tracks off the Red House Painters' eponymous second (which fans have rechristened Rollercoaster)—"Grace Cathedral Park" and "Katy Song"—are among the seven songs that have ever actually brought me to tears. Kozelek's arrogant, sure—but I'll argue arrogance is permissible if you're actually brilliant. MORGAN TROPER
