Neutral Milk Hotel reunion underway (setlists, video)

While Jeff Mangum has been back in action for a while Neutral Milk Hotel — the band — broke their 15-year silence over the weekend when they began their extensive reunion tour, which so far has hit Baltimore’s 2640 Space on Friday (10/11) and Richmond’s The National on Saturday (10/12). The setlists so far have been pretty similar (but not identical), including almost every song from In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, plus material from their only other studio album, On Avery Island, and some other tracks from throughout their career like “Engine.” Photos and videos weren’t allowed, but you can see a picture of NMH’s stage setup above and a video from realllllllly far back of them playing “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea” at the Richmond show, below. Also below are the setlists from each night, including a picture of the Baltimore one (via Stereogum).

Both shows (and most of the October run), were with Elephant 6 pals Elf Power, who just played some of their own shows, including NYC’s Knitting Factory last Monday (10/7). The NMH tour continues in Covington, KY tonight (10/14) and comes to the NYC-area for shows at Capitol Theatre on January 22, BAM Howard Gilman Opera House on January 23, 24 and 25, and Webster Hall on January 27 and 28. The Webster Hall shows are sold out, but you can still get Capitol Theatre tickets, and there’s VERY FEW (around half a dozen) left for the BAM shows, which needed to be ordered by phone.

Updated dates are listed, along with the setlists and video, below…
