The Mountain Goats - LIVE Feb. 11, 2004

I could really just post rare or weird Mountain Goats things on youtube forever and ever. Here's a entire request set from 2004. AT THE Dennis Kucinich Campaign Headquarters. It's a pretty wonderful mix of old and new, classics and new classics.

The Mountain Goats - Eugene Sue

Hey, remember when The Mountain Goats auctioned off that rare one song demo tape? It's been ripped and posted to the internet in perhaps the most evocative way possible. I love that the video includes the process of playing the tape in the Walkman. Thanks, internet person. Thank you forever.
