Elephant 6 Holiday tour 2008 (more by Lori Baily)
Elephant 6

Though the full set of dates hasn't been announced yet, it looks like the Elephant 6 collective is going on another "Holiday Surprise Tour," though this time the holiday is whatever happens in March. The NYC shows are March 22nd at Knitting Factory and March 23rd at Le Poisson Rouge. The latter lists the following:

Elephant 6 Holiday Surprise Tour
w/ Elephant 6 orchestra featuring Will Cullen Hart, Bill Doss, Peter Erchick, John Fernandes , Julian Koster, Scott Spillane, Andrew Rieger, Laura Carter, Derek Almstead , Heather McIntosh, Bryan Poole, Theo Hilton , Robbie Cucchiaro and others play the music of The Olivia Tremor Control, Elf Power, Circulatory System, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Gerbils, Nana Grizol, Major Organ and and Adding Machine, Pipes You See, Pipes You Don't , plus games, films & other surprises
This news comes hot on the heels of Saturday's private Jeff Mangum show, and Jeff did in fact join in the fun in 2008, but of course there are no guarantees and it will be great either way. Tickets are on sale for both shows (just click the links above). Stay tuned for all dates.

Meanwhile The Music Tapes aka Julian Koster is now on his own holiday tour.

Mangum might / might not but I;m excited for more Olivia Tremor Control... they sold out 2 nights at Bowery a few years back they are no chumps.. "Dusk at cubist castle" is one of the best records of the 90s... also The Gerbils fucking rock... there's a lot to love here without Jeff The Knitting Factory show a few years back was awesome & Jeff had a very small supporting role that night...just backing vocals..

Isn't this where Mangum played in May and if so won't he probably show up again?

I just hope that if he only does one date, it's the second one. It'll be terrible if a bunch of insufferable assholes hear he played the Knit, buy inflated tickets the next day, and then descend upon the second show, only to not see him.

This cult already did it's damndest making that LPR fundraiser a couple months back really fucking weird. They'll just spend the whole time talking during the other bands, and flinging their handwritten, weepy poetry on stage.

If by terrible you mean hilarious, then yes.

Olivia Tremor Control is a bit underrated. Dusk at Cubist Castle and Black Foliage are both essential.

Olivia Tremor Control + Elf Power + Gerbils + The chance of Jeff Mangum showing up = Going both nights

@10:41. Hilarious to read about on BV, agreed, but terrible to stand next to them in a public place for four hours.

this sounds like it will be a lot of fun, whether jeff plays or not. thanks for posting this bv guy, as i probably would have heard about it too late to get tickets otherwise.

OMFG this will probably be the best show in my entire lifetime...I've been waiting since 1998 for this

@10:13 - if it means that much, you probably should have seen it in '08?

Posted by Anonymous | December 7, 2010 3:19 PM

aww yeah, another e6 tour. I missed the last one and regret it still.

Posted by Anonymous | December 7, 2010 3:39 PM
