    Default Elephant 6 Holiday Surprise Tour

    http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/articl...-surprise-tour

    Music Tapes frontguy/Neutral Milk Hotel member Julian Koster describes the upcoming "Elephant 6 Holiday Surprise Tour" as something like "a big orchestra, variety show, silly happy thing." How very fitting.
    The tight-knit, loosely-defined Georgia-based psych-rocking collective will assemble its ranks (well, quite a few of 'em, anyway) for an October jaunt celebrating the music of Olivia Tremor Control, Circulatory System, the Music Tapes, Elf Power, the Gerbils, Scott Spillane, Nana Grizol, Nesey Gallons, and more. Joining Koster on the trek are Will Cullen Hart of Olivia Tremor Control, Scott Spillane of the Gerbils, Laura Carter of Elf Power, Eric Harris of OTC and Circulatory System, Nesey Gallons, and whoever else they can fit in the van.

    Plus, Koster will be bringing along such Music Tapes "members" as the 7 ft. Tall Metronome and Static the Television. The trek comes on the heels of Merge's October 7 release of the Music Tapes' The Singing Saw at Christmastime. (It's the second Music Tapes album this year; Merge released Music Tapes for Clouds and Tornadoes on August 19.)

    Alas, there's no mention of the participation of Jeff Mangum on this tour. But, hey, there's nothing that says he's not coming, either!
    But the reclusive Neutral Milk Hotel bard does appear in Major Organ and the Adding Machine, the decade-in-the-making short film directed by Joey Foreman and Eric Harris we first mentioned last winter. And he's wearing a full-on lobster costume, too! Orange Twin is set to release a CD/DVD combo of Major Organ in the fall of 2009, with the audio portion comprised of an expanded edition-- with seven bonus cuts-- of the 2000 LP that features Jeff Mangum, Kevin Barnes, Will Cullen Hart, Julian Koster, Andrew Reiger, and Dixie Blood Moustache. The flick will premiere during the Elephant 6 Holiday Surprise Tour, and is currently being submitted to film festivals.

    In addition to all the E6 family fun, the Music Tapes will perform at Merge Records' CMJ showcase at New York City's Mercury Lounge on October 25.

    I can't believe this. I would be thrilled to go to an E6 group tour.

    I would be so happy if I could see this. And, yeah, Denver is a surprise, seeing as how all the important E6ers lived there for a year and developed E6 west there. God, this has so much potential to rock.

    I think that this is different than the Music Tapea lullabyes tour.

    Note that the press release for this one specifically includes the music of Neutral Milk Hotel. I'll be at Spaceland on March 4th (Why do I feel like something is going on that day?)

    That hopefully means that Will Cullen Hart's MS is more under control now. He told me that was the big problem with him touring in the past ten years. Course, he drinks a fair amount too, so that probably doesn't help.
