Coachella 2013: Father John Misty uses charisma and songs to win over Gobi Tent
INDIO – Father John Misty used a combination of humor, charisma and music to earn what he called a “victory, victory in the desert” at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Sunday.Father John Misty, real name Josh Tillman, told the audience during his set that “I feel like playing this thing now” before he picked up an acoustic guitar. “This thing is called a laptop.”
That’s Father John Misty in a nutshell and he kept the mood light and energetic with jokes and moves like picking up the mic stand, spinning around or kneeling to the music and most importantly infectious music.
Misty’s band featured a lot of acoustic guitar mixed with experimental rock and folk that kept the set in constant motion during songs like “Funtimes in Babylon,” “Misty’s Nightmares 1 & 2,” “Well, You Can Do It Without Me” and more.
