John Vanderslice, Mountain Goats & Tallest Man on Earth @ Buskirk Chumley Theater (Bloomington) – 4/6



Coming to Bloomington is an indie supershow with John VandersliceThe Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle & The Tallest Man on Earth.  Each of these bands alone would be worth the trip.  Unfortunately, I hadn’t discovered teh awesomeness of Tallest Man on Earth until after he was in town.  Vanderslice makes some of the best indie rock being made today and is ready to put out a highly anticipated album, Mountain Goats tread a fine line between cute and hard-rocking.
