Mark Kozelek: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 8 2010

For San Franciscans who appreciate artisan singer-songwriters dealing in deeply passionate lyrics and timeless melodies, Mark Kozelek is a source of endless civic pride. The local denizen first showed off his talents in the '90s as the captain of slowcore specialists Red House Painters, and has continued to tap into a wellspring of beauty and reflection as the main melancholy man behind Sun Kil Moon. His latest SKM product, Admiral Fell Promises, is an all-nylon-string-guitar affair, which means very little of it will be lost in translation at Friday's solo performance at the Palace of Fine Arts. Then again, this is the guy who has made AC/DC and Modest Mouse songs sound like his own, so everything should be in its right place regardless of the part of his discography from which he chooses to draw.
