The Mountain Goats were the latest animal band to make a stop at the Natural History Museum’s First Fridays last week. The band played a few new ones (a beautiful “San Bernardino”) and lots of oldies, including All Hail West Texas‘s “Jenny.” John Darnielle’s never been my favorite singer-songwriter — despite my general adoration of dudes with funny voices, guy sounds like Kermit the Frog — but his stage presence was nothing if not completely charismatic. I may dig into that cassette-only back catalog yet. More photos and an MP3 after the jump.
