Father John Misty at Riviera Theatre

Father John Misty brought his tour behind 2015’s I Love You Honeybear to Chicago’s Riviera Theatre on April 15 with opener Tess and Dave. In addition to his own stuff, during the encore he told the crowd “It’s a little sappy but I would like to play my favorite love song for you” and then proceeded to perform a very faithful cover of Nine Inch Nails “Closer.” Video of that, plus pictures from the whole night and FJM’s setlist, below.
