The Mountain Goats, Dustin Wong

When: Mon., June 25, 8 p.m. 2012

Few musicians inspire such profound devotion among their fans as John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats—evidenced by the fact that nearly all the upcoming West Coast dates are sold out. Not many bands peak with their 13th album, but that's just what the Mountain Goats did with last year's All Eternals Deck, which set a high bar for the upcoming, as yet unheard Transcendental Youth, due out in a matter of months. Darnielle has spent the last two decades consistently reinventing the Mountain Goats, and this version sees him performing solo. For those drawn to Darnielle's lyrics, and his willingness to stare into the face of darkness and still find hope, this will be plenty. REBECCA WILSON
