The Mountain Goats: October Tour


The Mountain Goats
The Mountain Goats announce the first leg of their fall tour, kicking off October 9 in Richmond, Virginia. Opening for the Mountain Goats will be Matthew E. White, who wrote the horn arrangements for the band's forthcoming release, Transcendental Youth. Matthew E. White, described by Stereogum as will be performing his debut album Big Inner with a 9-piece band; his horn section, in this special tour engagement, will join in the Mountain Goats' set.

Before the tour kicks off, the Mountain Goats will play a covers and rarities set at the Hopscotch Music Festival on September 7 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Then on October 6 in Durham, the Mountain Goats will perform the program Transcendental Youth with the world-renowned vocal quartet, Anonymous 4. Five songs from Transcendental Youth, in special vocal arrangements by Owen Pallett, serve as the hub of the program, which also spans the catalog of both the Mountain Goats and Anonymous 4. The program was performed earlier this year at the Ecstatic Music Festival in New York City and at The Barbican in London.The Mountain Goats Tour Dates
