Mountain Goats Announces Tour Dates, Covers Weeds Theme Song

John Darnielle must know exactly how excited (or disappointed) some of his fans (like me) can be with the announcement of a Mountain Goats tour. Darnielle was very careful to write on twitter that the announced dates represent only the first leg of what will be further touring in support of their album Transcendental Youth, which drops on Merge Records on October 2nd. You can see if you are one of the lucky cities in the full list of tour dates below, which is preceded by a stream/download of the Mountain Goats cover of the Weeds theme song “Little Boxes,” aligning them with a slew of other musicians whose versions of the song have been heard during the show’s opening credits.
