A native of Anacortes, Washington — a small town on an island in the Puget Sound — Phil Elverum is a writer of deeply personal songs about memories, myths, the natural world and the sublime. Formerly releasing his music as the Microphones, Elverum has recorded and performed as Mount Eerie since 2003. After the death of his wife, visual artist and musician Geneviève Castrée, in 2016, Elverum wrote A Crow Looked at Me — as eloquent an expression of loss and grief as any in the popular music canon. Elverum’s latest album is Lost Wisdom pt. 2, which features his frequent collaborator and close friend Julie Doiron, who plays with Elverum tonight.

Mount Eerie plays with Julie Doiron at 7 p.m. on Saturday, December 7 at the Masonic Lodge, Hollywood Forever.
