Last seen in Buffalo in April 2016, the Mountain Goats have announced a quick return to town at 7 p.m. April 20 in Asbury Hall at Babeville (341 Delaware Ave.).
The veteran California-bred outfit, which features much revered singer-songwriter John Darinelle in addition to John Wurster of the cult-radio program "The Best Show" on drums, will be again on the road in support of the May-released "Goths." The album is a concept record about the life of a West Coast goth musician in the 1980s.
"Goths" is the follow-up to 2015's pro wrestling-inspired "Beat the Champ."
Tickets are $25 in advance and will go on sale at noon Nov. 3 (box office, Ticketfly or charge by phone at 877-987-6487). Further event details can be found here.
