Merge Records, celebrating 25 years of not working for you, but working, tips the news that Jeff Mangum and Neutral Milk Hotel are going on the road next spring and summer, for a limited run.
There is what looks like a blank date between Santa Cruz (Cocoanut Grove Ballroom?) and Eugene, which probably means Frisco and Another Planet or Live Nation or Great American/HSB, but why not fantasize that we will re-open The Cub for this show, or the new Mitchell Center in PA?
Astra Taylor, wife of Jeff, is my pal thanks to me stalking various screenings of “Examined Life”; her sister, Jeff’s in-law, Sunaura Taylor I can commission for a cool poster.
Elephant 6 bands that played The Cub: Creeper Lagoon, Beulah, Olivia Tremor Control, The Music Tapes.
Merge Acts at the Cub: Superchunk, Imperial Teen.
It’s generally not a good idea for a promoter to promise to bring this or that act; never announce a show until there is signed contract in hand. But internet and blogs disrupt all rules, right?
Also, I posted a board tape of OTC on some site if people want to find it. Also, I have what I think are cool mini-posters of that show, if people want to arrange to have one, we can work it out.
