The Music Tapes taking ‘The Orbiting Human Circus (of the Air)’ on tour

orbiting human circus

Neutral Milk Hotel member Julian Koster’s band The Music Tapes often go on very unique tours. Their latest is the ‘The Orbiting Human Circus (of The Air) featuring The Music Tapes’ tour. Here’s the description:

Both an immersive theatrical experience and a musical show, this evening commemorates the release of The Orbiting Human Circus (of the Air), a fictional narrative podcast created by Julian Koster (Neutral Milk Hotel) and presented by the creators of Welcome to Night Vale (one of the most downloaded podcasts of all time). Spend an evening with the show’s lead character, the hapless Janitor of the Eiffel Tower—played by Koster—who will attempt, and fail, to clean this very venue, as surreal events, songs (by the Music Tapes), and magic simply happen all around him (and you).

The tour ends in NYC at Brooklyn Bazaar on June 4 (tickets). All tour dates are below.
