A beautiful night full of unearthly music. I hadn’t seen Bowerbirds in a year, and it was thrilling to hear the new stuff they’re writing, bigger and scarier and more lovely than before. Mount Moriah opened in support of their recent debut LP, and were absolutely phenomenal. It’s funny to think that that band name has gone from an indie rock project fronted by Jenks — I saw them once in 2005 in that configuration, when a grad school classmate was drumming for them — to the lovely, startling, heartbreaking songs that they’re writing now and putting behind Heather’s staggering voice.
