Monsters of Folk at the Landmark Theatre 

Tuesday, Nov. 10

Make all of the Traveling Wilburys comparisons that you want, but Monsters of Folk is most certainly a different kind of songwriters' supergroup. Comprised of M. Ward, My Morning Jacket's Jim James, and Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis, this musical creature took form in 2004 when these four stalwarts of indie rock hit the road together sharing stage time with each other's respective bands. Somehow finding time in their varying schedules, the like-minded artists managed to sit down and record a collection of original songs, recently released as their self-titled debut. With each member alternating duties on guitar, bass and drums, vocal harmonies abound. Ward, James, Oberst and Mogis bring their Frankenstein experiment to the Landmark Theatre on Nov. 10. Tickets available through the National at
