"With every passing day, I become more and more at peace with the fact that [The Paper Chase] will never play again," he says, while acknowledging the difficulty he's had coming to terms with that. "I mean, God, it was 11 fucking years that I put into that thing."

It sounds depressing when he says it like that, but the good news is this: The Nighty Nite's existence means that one of the most exciting musical minds that Dallas has seen this millennium is still creating music—even if at this point he's doing so less for glory and more for catharsis.

Say good morning to John Congleton’s new band, The Nighty Nite.

"I don't really have anything to lose at this point," Congleton says, letting loose something of a self-deprecating chuckle. "At the end of the day, I'm just doing this for self-satisfaction."
