Father John Misty

April 23 at the Fillmore Philadelphia

This idiosyncratic crooner, with a heart of fool’s gold, is not for everyone. But if you like your string-laced balladry and retro-leaning folk rock hardwired with a brutal honesty and an often absurd cynicism, Father John’s universally applauded 2015 album, I Love You, Honeybear, is worth owning. Live, he’s as entertaining as he is unpredictable.
