Neutral Milk Hotel

The Wordless Music Series has announced:

In September of 2006, the Wordless Music series presented its first concert at the 250-capacity Good Shepherd Faith Church on West 66th Street in New York City. Five years later, we are slightly shocked and humbled to announce the start of our 5th anniversary season with a true musical great: Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel, performing his first U.S. live shows since 1998, and in two of the country's great acoustical treasures: on Saturday, September 10, at the 1,050-capacity Jordan Hall at New England Conservatory in Boston; and on Friday, September 9, at an historic 1,150-capacity venue to be announced next week. Tickets for these concerts will be $35 and open to audience members of all ages. A small number of tickets for the Jordan Hall concert go on presale next Friday, February 25 at 10am by phone, online, and (with no service charges) at the Jordan Hall box office; the remaining Jordan Hall tickets will be sold at the same outlets starting at 10am on Saturday, February 26. Ticket info for September 9's concert will be disclosed....imminently.
There goes ATP's claim that the September 30th and October 3rd shows will be "his first large public show of Neutral Milk Hotel songs in over a decade." They will be at least his 3rd or 4th now. Stay tuned for more info as it's released.

So, what venue has a 1,150-capacity?

UPDATE: Jeff Mangum is playing & curating an ATP UK too.

Are there any 1,150 cap places in NYC? Going to be bummed if he doesn't play here as I can't make ATP.

does this mean he's just playing an instrumental set?

Come fall time, this dude will be playing numerous amounts of shows. My guess will be the BK Waterfront x2.

He should bring the rest of NMH with him. Would love to see him with a full band.

Could the venue be the Church of St. Paul the Apostle on 59th and Columbus? - its listed on the wordless music series website as one of their venues and it seems to be about the right size.

"does this mean he's just playing an instrumental set?"

no, the "Wordless" music series is not actually just wordless shows. It was at first but then expanded and kept the name

The September 9th show will be at The Grand Prospect Hall. Is that also in MA?

Kinda on topic but the last time I saw Jeff Mangum, there was this amazingly annoying couple who were not only talking during the whole show but were talking about TMI info. The guy kept asking her "Do you like my seven and a half inches? Do you like my seven and a half inches? Is it the biggest you've ever had?" Yeah bro you're cool

Grand Prospect Hall is in Brooklyn.

Every show?! I only saw it happen once. Man, that guy must not be able to keep his women happy if he's pulling that line at countless other shows they attend together...

The sept 9 show is another Boston show , not NYC

He's also hosting the December ATP in Minehead UK

Posted by Adam | February 16, 2011 10:10 AM

He's also headlining Coachella 2012, but camping passes are already sold out and the mod on the message board said 3-day passes should be sold out within the coming hours.

he's opening for lcd at my house. with hummus.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 10:13 AM

I'm going to guess the 9/9 date is going to be at the Mass MoCa in Adams, MA. They've been booking a lot of folky-indie shows lately (Iron & Wine, the Wilco fest.)

dude it wasn't funny the first time.. you are making hummus jokes look creative.. stop wasting space on this planet

I originally created the "seven and a half inches" story and even I can't believe it's still being posted around here. You guys know that story is made up and seven and a half inches is average at best, right?

3 nights at madison square garden

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 10:40 AM

Needs to be a place where a cap of $35 can be kept--that seems to be a theme among these Mangum shows. So, maybe the Troc in Philly or a small art theater in no. NJ. Town Hall is def a top possibility

Posted by BLG | February 16, 2011 10:43 AM

average is 5.5-6
this is the worst meme ever

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 10:44 AM

He's playing under the Williamsburg Bridge. Presale at Terminal 5. Line up now kids. Will be sold out before they go on sale. Pre-sold out if you will.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 10:47 AM

Gimme a break, 5.5-6 is not average anymore. Average is probably more like 6.5-7" these days.

Trinity St. Paul's United Church in Toronto

Seems to me that he's playing in Boston on the 9th; the shows in NJ are going to be the "NYC-area" shows.

HAHA! This is what you all you other states get for stealing Lightning Bolts entire tour.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 12:43 PM

I'm guessing Masonic Temple. Wordless put Godspeed there, it is close to Mangum's apartment, has the right capacity, and is "historic"-ish.

"The Brooklyn Masonic Temple is a 1200-capacity concert hall located in the heart of Fort Greene, Brooklyn."

1,150 versus 1,200 is really just splitting hairs.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 1:08 PM

guys, it's been announced -- he's playing town hall on 10/29.

it's on pitchfork right now.

also, the unannounced venue on 9/9 is probably most definitely sanders theater at harvard. not sure why it hasn't been confirmed.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 1:37 PM

They should really announce like 10 nights at once if they want to neutralize scalpers. P4k reporting it's town hall. He could easily sell out 20 nights there.

LOEW'S THEATER, OMG

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 1:42 PM

sanders theater = 1,166 capacity, and it's quite historic. so i imagine that's where he's playing in cambridge.

saw ray davies there many years ago; it's a really good space.
