The Mountain Goats first formed in Claremont, California in an employee-housing studio apartment by singer-songwriter John Darnielle. It all began on a dual cassette recorder, where Darnielle would set his poems to music and would play a guitar he had picked up for a few dollars at a nearby music store. Since 1991, Darnielle has written around 600 beautiful and unnerving songs. SCOPE Productions is bringing him to the beautiful and historic First United Methodist Church, which features intricate stained glass windows and a gorgeous, intimate acoustic environment.

Formerly of indie bands Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown, Spencer Krug’s latest band, Moonface, is making his way to The Mill this winter.
