Josh Tillman grew up in an Evangelical Christian home in a suburb of Washington, D.C. where secular music was not allowed. Rebelling against those beliefs, he found himself in the folk rock scene in the Pacific North West. That eventually lead to a drumming gig with the indie band Fleet Foxes. He found success on his own under the pseudonym Father John Misty. Last year's album I Love You Honeybear made most top Album Lists of 2015.

|The amazing lighting theatrics|
Father John Misty is an amazing performer. His powerful voice and commanding stage presents channeled James Brown and Elvis Presley. He sang with so much passion that he was brought to his knees and even threw his guitar high above the stage into a roadies' arms. The women in audience swooned to his swagger and screamed in excitement whenever Father John Misty was inspired to dance. The men in the audience mostly all had beards and I don't know what they were doing underneath all that hair.
