Jeff Mangum played 3 shows @ Paramount Theatre, was joined by Jermey Barnes, covered other outsider musicians (setlists)

Mangum

Jeff Mangum isn’t on the list, but one could argue that the elusive frontman of Neutral Milk Hotel might be classifiable as an “outsider musician”, much like Daniel Johnston (who he covered on Friday again) and Roky Erickson (who he covered on Sunday again). Those covers aside, Jeff’s three ATP Asbury Park setlists, religous experiences for many, stuck 100% to songs he wrote.

At last night’s show (Monday, 10/3), Jeff was also joined on stage for two songs by show opener A Hawk and a Hacksaw, his Neutral Milk Hotel band-mate Jeremy Barnes included. To quote one anonymous attendee, “I loved him just solo but when they came out it sounded like neutral milk hotel.” It looks like we’re one step closer to the full on reunion. The Neutral Milk Hotel box set is out 11/22.

Last night’s setlist also included “Little Birds” which he didn’t play the other two nights. Two quote wiki, it’s “the only song by Neutral Milk Hotel written after the release of In the Aeroplane over the Sea of which a recorded version exists.

“It’s the beginning of a story where a boy is in a not-so-nice situation. One day, little birds start to form around him in his room. They start coming into his body and he was very happy about this. But unfortunately he tries to share it with other people and they get very upset because this is something that he finds to be very beautiful but they don’t find very beautiful and they want to destroy it.” –Jeff Mangum

Jeff comes even closer to and in NYC when he plays sold out shows at Town Hall on October 29th and Landmark Loew’s Theatre in Jersey City on 11/6. Jeff also has a benefit show scheduled in Woodstock. No openers have been announced for those.
