Sun Kil Moon, aka Mark Kozelek, performs his plaintive, haunting, poetically rambling and often autobiographical songs at the Old Town School of Folk Music (4544 N Lincoln Ave) on Tuesday, October 3rd at 8pm.
Former frontman for the San Francisco band Red House Painters, Kozolek formed Sun Kil Moon in 2002. The band’s debut, Ghosts Of The Great Highway (2003, Jetset Records) was greatly received by critics and audiences alike but the band’s largest success was the highly acclaimed Benji (2014, Caldo Verde Records), which produced the alternative radio hit "Ben’s My Friend" as well as multiple references to Panera Bread.
Sun Kil Moon is touring in support of its latest release, Common As Light And Love Are Red Valleys Of Blood (2017, Caldo Verde Records). A prolific songwriter with numerous solo releases and collaborations, Caldo Verde will release Kozelek’s latest, a collaborative collection entitled Mark Kozelek with Ben Boye and Jim White, on October 5th. The album will stream on Kozelek’s website in the days before its release. Sun Kil Moon will be joined at The Old Town School by Magik Magik Orchestra, Steve Shelley (drums) and Josh Haden (bass).
