Father John Misty performed the first of two sold out nights at Humphrey’s Concerts by the Bay on San Diego on August 3. The show, a rare non-seated show, at the venue was mostly 20 somethings but there were a few older folks, like me, in attendance as well.

Misty is on tour to support his latest album, Chloë and the 20th Century. He opened the show with “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings” from his 2012 album Fear Fun. By the third song, “Total Entertainment Forever,” the audience was singing along. It wasn’t until well into the set that he finally did a song from the new album. The full setlist is below. https://fatherjohnmisty.com

Model, actress, and singer Suki Waterhouse opened the evening with songs from her debut album “I can’t let go. Her set was only about 25 minutes or so but she put on a great show. She really seemed to be enjoying herself and fed off the crowd that were smart enough to get there early and see here performance. You can definitely see she knows how to work a stage and her voice has a very sultry quality.

She opened the show with “Moves” which also happens to be the first track on her album. She followed that up with her first single from the record “Bullshit on the Internet.” Other songs included “Melrose Meltdown,” “Good Looking,” and my favorite “The Devil I Know.”

It was a good night of music enhanced by a beautiful sunset at this iconic San Diego music venue.
