Mount Eerie with Nicholas Krgovich
@ First Unitarian Church, doors @ 8pm
In 2001, Phil Elverum and the Microphones released The Glow Pt. 2, an amazing, unpredictable, expansive album. Elverum has been touring under the Mount Eerie name since 2003 and though the albums have sometimes been misses, this should be a good show.
