Photo Recap: Father John Misty and King Tuff at Garfield Park

Father John Misty and King Tuff packed the Garfield Park MacAllister Amphitheater earlier this fall, filling the lawn with sounds from their latest albums. Father John Misty performed tracks from his new album, God’s Favorite Customer, as well as a selection from his earlier releases. The murmurs of ego and self-loathing now synonymous with the Misty brand were in tow, but the live setting allowed for more than that to seep through performance. On display was an artist with a rich palette of experience to pull from, connecting with the crowd by calling out familiar moments of disaffection in everyday life.

King Tuff opened the evening, hurling garage riffs over the crowd as they filled in. Although his newest album, The Other, is a slight sonic departure from the burned out psychedelia of previous albums, the fuzzy heart still remains. The set felt searching yet reassuring, asking lots of questions but not freaking out about the lack of answers.
