Moving forth with his revived live show, Neutral Milk Hotel’s Jeff Mangum has announced U.S. tour dates for January and February. (As mentioned, he’ll also play the Occupy Wall Street-affiliated Strike Debt telethon on November 15.) The 2013 tour is detailed at his website, which notes that a portion of proceeds from ticket sales and box sets will benefit Children of the Blue Sky. Dates will be supported by the Music Tapes, Tall Firs, and Briars of North America.
On his website, Mangum shared the following zany note:
hello friends in a flock of finches unfolding from the face of a foam horse on the phone to inform you that jeff is heading out for one last u.s. acoustic tour, giving him the chance to play to all the silver citizens dwelling in citys that he has yet to sing in.
Watch Jeff Mangum play “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea” in 1998, after the dates.
