Father John Misty
Having begun his music career as a drummer in the band Fleet Foxes, Josh Tillman launched his solo career under the moniker Father John Misty with the album Fear Fun in 2012. Since that time, Father John Misty has released the albums I Love You, Honeybear (2015) and Pure Comedy (2017), garnering much attention with his thoughtfully constructed songs consisting of indie-folk arrangements under lyrics that can be alternately beautiful, disturbing or confounding. That’s no accident — through his songwriting and performing persona, Father John Misty takes on culturally heavy topics, including politics, language, religion, love, entertainment … even existence itself.
Father John Misty’s music has struck a chord with local audiences, as his résumé of live shows attests: in the past couple of years, Father John Misty has performed notable shows at Hall’s Island in Minneapolis, at Surly Brewing Festival Field and memorably, at a #MicroShow for The Current, held at Icehouse in Minneapolis. And on June 16, 2018, Father John Misty will bring his music and his spellbinding stage presence to Rock The Garden.
Access to both stages as well as food and beverage vendors.
VIP Skybox offers an exclusive view of the stage from Walker’s rooftop terraces, access to air-conditioned comfort of the Garden Terrace Room, complimentary eats, three drink tickets, and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages.
