On Friday, June 14th, Father John Misty and Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit’s co-headlining Minneapolis concert at The Armory, as well as opener Jade Bird’s set, will be live streamed in full via The Current beginning at 7 pm CT. Father John Misty and Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit are currently in the midst of a U.S. tour which ends on June 29th at Tulsa’s BOK Center.
Father John Misty is currently supporting God’s Favorite Customer, his acclaimed release from 2018. Written largely in New York between summer 2016 and winter 2017, the album reflects on the experience of being caught between the vertigo of heartbreak and the manic throes of freedom. God’s Favorite Customer reveals a bittersweetness and directness in Tillman’s songwriting, without sacrificing any of his wit or taste for the absurd. God’s Favorite Customer earned placement on over 30 “Best Albums of 2018” lists & readers polls including Esquire, KCRW, NME, NPR, PASTE,Pitchfork, Q, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, Uncut, Under the Radar,Uproxx, and Village Voice‘s “Pazz & Jop.”
Four-time Grammy Award winner, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit are touring in support of their album The Nashville Sound (winner of “Best Americana” and “Best American Roots Song” for “If We Were Vampires”) and the highly praised live set Live From The Ryman. Isbell has become one the most respected songwriters of his generation, with a penchant for articulating some of our deepest, human emotions and creating poignant narratives inspired by the working class. Together with the mighty 400 Unit – Derry deBorja (keyboards), Chad Gamble (drums), Jimbo Hart (bass), Sadler Vaden (guitar) and Amanda Shires (fiddle) – they have become one of the strongest live acts on the road today.
