There’s been plenty of dark video documentation of Jeff Mangum’s recent Holiday Surprise Tour surprise appearances, but now that these performances are no longer a surprise, it appears people are showing up with better cameras. For instance, we now have the brightest Jeff Mangum footage yet. The first clip was shot in Pontiac, Michigan on 10/20. It’s Jeff and the gang doing a rendition of Circulatory System’s “Forever,” as is their want.
This clip from Rochester, New York’s Bug Jar performance on 10/17 isn’t as bright, but it’s still plenty good to see what’s happening, namely a raucous performance of Olivia Tremor Control’s “Opera House.”
And here’s “Forever” (Chicago, 10/21 Version):
“Engine” from the same show:
Then there’s this clip titled “Jeff Being Silly,” thought it’s actually Jeff dancing and having a blast on “The Opera.”
Since the quality is getting better, can’t wait for the HD clips from E6’s last two tour stops in Bloomington (last night) and Lexington (tonight).
