The Mountain Goats visited the new NPR show Cabinet of Wonders. Hosted by John Wesley Harding, Cabinet of Wonders is a variety show with celebrated musicians, writers and comedians.
Described as, “a little bit Vaudeville, a little bit rock n’ roll — and a whole lot of fun,” Cabinet of Wonders can be downloaded at NPR.org. The Mountain Goats appeared on episode 2 along with Craig Finn (of the Hold Steady), Rosanne Cash, and Hamilton Leithauser (of The Walkmen). Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Paul Harding read an evocative, unusual tale about life on the Nigerian oil fields. And comedian Eugene Mirman read secret messages he leaves on bar napkins, to surprise customers he’ll never meet.
The Mountain Goats will head to the west coast this month for a nearly sold out solo tour. Beginning in Seattle on June 23 and held at smaller venues, the solo tour will end on July 3 at the Folk Music Center in Claremont, CA. All Eternals Deck is available on CD, LP and digital download now in the Merge store.
