Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel will be touring in early 2013 and stopping in Cleveland on Friday, January 11th, 2013. The show will be presented by The Grog Shop and held in The Ohio City Masonic Temple on Franklin Blvd in Ohio City.
Like many of its Elephant 6 counterparts (Olivia Tremor Control, Apples In Stereo), Neutral Milk Hotel has its origins in the small town of Ruston, LA. The Elephant 6 Collective was formed there by a group of childhood friends who shared a love for music that no one else in Ruston seemed to know (much less care) about. The intervening years have seen the members of that core group spread across the country, each following his own musical calling. While Olivia Tremor Control cultivate their (seemingly endless) creative impulses to sublime effect, and Apples In Stereo have restored pop song-craft to the art form it was always meant to be, Neutral Milk Hotel are to many the heart and soul of Elephant 6.
Jeff Mangum has always been Neutral Milk Hotel’s central figure, and he’s used that moniker for everything from his own solo excursions to marching band-like musical happenings. In The Aeroplane Over The Sea marked a new phase for Mangum and his namesake. The group’s debut album, On Avery Island, was a wonderfully dense hodgepodge of song and sound, an ambitious, eclectic work that reflected the nomadic lifestyle that Mangum and his friends shared at the time. But the two years leading up to In The Aeroplane Over The Sea brought a stability that the band never had (nor wanted) before.
