Seems like it's been a long time since a any Phoenix promoter felt like shelling out the big bucks it takes to rent the gorgeous Orpheum Theatre downtown for a show. It appears the inaugural tour by Monsters of Folk, an ironically-named side project featuring My Morning Jacket's Jim James, Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis, and singer/songwriter M. Ward, is worth it.
Monsters of Folk is scheduled to play the theater on Oct. 21. Should be a great night. Ticket info here.
