Neutral Milk Hotel

The news of Neutral Milk Hotel’s long-hoped-for reunion landed like a bomb last week, but the band only announced five live dates. Two were in the tiny Athens 40 Watt Club, two were overseas, and only one was the sort of thing into which your average American ticket-buyer would have any hope of gaining entry. That’s changed now. The band has extended its planned reunion tour to 16 dates (including three in Australia), with more presumably to follow. They’re starting things off in a Unitarian church in Baltimore’s Charles Village neighborhood, a place that throws really nice spaghetti-dinner fundraisers sometimes. Check out all the announced-thus-far dates below.
