American singer songwriter Mount Eerie has announced an intimate show in support of his acclaimed record A Crow Looked At Me at Mojos Bar on Sunday, January 21.
Mount Eerie is a experimental electronic/indie project started in 2003 by Phil Elverum, formerly of The Microphones. A Crow Looked At Me is a concept album about the death of Elverum’s wife, the cartoonist and musician Geneviève Castrée.
It is among the most acclaimed releases of 2017, currently holding the somewhat ridiculous score of 93/100 on Metacritic.
In 2015 Castrée was diagnosed with cancer just after giving birth to their first child. She died a year later. Elverum wrote and recored the album throughout the fall of 2016 in the same room where Geneviève died, using mostly her instruments, her pick, her amp, writing the words on her paper. The songs are about the brutal details of that experience.
Mount Eerie’s show at Mojos is set to be an intimate night not to be missed.
Mount Eerie plays Mojos Bar on Sunday, January 21. Tickets on sale now.
