The presence of the former Neutral Milk Hotel frontman Jeff Mangum is one of the real curveballs in this year’s Coachella lineup. All Tomorrow’s Parties events aside, the once-reclusive Mangum doesn’t really seem like a festival guy. But Neutral Milk Hotel fandom is a powerful thing, and if more people are watching Mangum, that probably just means the “Oh Comely” singalong is going to be louder. In the leadup to Coachella, Mangum has just announced a few West Coast dates, and we’ve got them listed out below.
4/09-10 – Oakland, CA @ Fox Theater
4/14 – Indio, CA @ Coachella
4/16 – Seattle, WA @ Moore Theatre
4/18-19 – Portland, OR @ Crystal Ballroom
4/21 – Indio, CA @ Coachella
