Musical iconoclast Father John Misty hits the stage at the Hollywood Bowl as part of KCRW's World Festival, along with the acoustic duo Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. A four-time Grammy nominee, indie folk-rocker Father John Misty is the troubadourian alter ego of Josh (J.) Tillman, a former drummer for the Fleet Foxes who's developed into a wry singer-songwriter. And the guy is crazy prolific. In just the past couple of years, he's released two acclaimed albums (Pure Comedy, God's Favorite Customer
), had a trio of Adult Alternative hits ("Ballad of the Dying Man," "Total Entertainment Forever," "Mr. Tillman"), appeared all over late-night TV (SNL
, Fallon, Myers) and even scored an acting gig in the new film Hotel Artemis
. KCRW DJ Jason Bentley hosts this evening of cutting-edge folk rock with openers Welch and Rawlings and Big Thief.
