John Darnielle may be one of a dying breed – the breed that doesn’t believe in writing an encore on the set list. “We believe that if you write your encore on your setlist, you’ll never see God.” In any case, The Mountain Goats more than earned their two encores at The Mayan in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. Darnielle played a stripped down collection that spanned the band’s discography, with the audience singing along every lyric. Throughout the night Darnielle beamed out at the crowd and couldn’t fully profess his appreciation for their love.

Also from The Mountain Goats’ adopted state of North Carolina, Loamlands warmed up the mid-week crowd. Led by Kym Register and Will Hackney, the four-piece brought some Southern indie rock.
