Studio One Tracks featured a live performance from The Mountain Goats on Sept. 12. It was the final show of a brief solo tour from Mountain Goats songwriter/vocalist/guitarist/pianist John Darnielle. The Maximum Ames Music Festival headlining performance was very well received by an enthusiastic full house at the First United Methodist Church in Ames. Many in the audience had come long distances to catch this intimate live set from The Mountain Goats. With a large catalog of songs to choose from, Darnielle mixed older compositions in with songs from the new album, Beat The Champ, and frequently spoke to the audience about the songs and his life. Enjoy this Studio One live set from The Mountain Goats!
