Jeff Mangum Is Touring, Playing Town Hall


The greatest indie-rock comeback story of all time (probably) (hopefully) continues apace: Neutral Milk Hotel deity Jeff Mangum has now announced a clutch of East Coast shows to complement his appearance at that crazy Asbury Park ATP event that I’m assuming is all sorts of sold out by now. The new slate includes shows in such deserving locales as Toronto, Boston, and, yes, New York City proper, via an October 29 date at Town Hall, which is a fantastic venue for him, a good mix of luxurious grandiosity and funereal hush. He’ll be at the Loew’s Theater in Jersey City a week later, too, and as you read this he’s reading an email from the Pitchfork Festival people offering him, like, eight billion dollars to drop by this year. It’s all happening. Per Pitchfork, here’s the lineup:

08-12 Toronto, Ontario – Trinity St. Paul’s United Church

08-13 Toronto, Ontario – Trinity St. Paul’s United Church

09-09 Cambridge, MA – TBA

09-10 Boston, MA – Jordan Hall at New England Conservatory

09-30 Asbury Park, NJ – Paramount Theatre (ATP)

10-03 Asbury Park, NJ – Paramount Theatre (ATP)

10-29 New York, NY – Town Hall

11-06 Jersey City, NJ – Loew’s Theatre
