The Mountain Goats-Inspired Burlesque Show Announced

The studio behind Welcome To Night Vale recently launched I Only Listen To The Mountain Goats, a podcast featuring Mountain Goats frontman John Darnielle in conversation with Night Vale host and Mountain Goats superfan Joseph Fink. Every episode of the podcast’s first season features a different cover of a track from the band’s classic 2002 album All Hail West Texas, all of which have been compiled in a tribute album also called I Only Listen To The Mountain Goats. And now, the Mountain Goats are getting a very different kind of tribute: A burlesque show called I Only Strip To The Mountain Goats.

Hosted by burlesque performer Anja Keister and endorsed by John Darnielle himself, the variety show will feature music, drag, go-go dancing, and burlesque. It’ll take place 6/1 at the Parkside Lounge in NYC, and all proceeds from the show will go to benefit the National Network Of Abortion Funds, legal defense funds for several burlesque performers being sued for defamation, and RAINN.
