When Jeff Mangum, once the reclusive leader of the great Georgia indie rock cult heroes Neutral Milk Hotel, started playing solo shows again, it was a very big deal. Well, this is bigger: He has once again reunited with his old band, and they have announced five shows, with more on the way. These will be their first 15 years, and you can find the schedule below.
10/22 – Athens, GA @ 40 Watt Club (with Elf Power)
10/23 – Athens, GA @ 40 Watt Club (with Half Japanese)
10/25 – Asheville, NC @ Thomas Wolfe Auditorium (with Half Japanese, Daniel Johnston)
11/28 – Taipei, Taiwan @ Hostess Club Festival
12/01 – Tokyo, Japan @ Hostess Club Festival
If they wanted to, a reunited NMH could probably sell out Madison Square Garden, no?
