PICK OF THE WEEK: The Mountain Goats Code

mountain goats john darnielleMountain Goats secret show this Saturday. Here are some clues to the show’s location from mountain-goats.com:

  • The room in which it’s taking place is very small
  • It’s in southern California in a place that’s kinda crucial to John Darnielle’s personal history
  • Head inland from the ocean

This rules out the Coliseum, Oki-Dog and the Pacific Ocean, but the Travelodge on Holt Boulevard between Gary and White remains a possibility. John goes on to warn, “if you figure it out and go blabbin’ about it to everybody the show probably won’t be able to happen so be discreet please i.e. keep your sleuthing private and your humble host who sees in secret will surely reward you, see you there.” Do it Rockapella!
