Tall Firs cover the Kinks, touring with Jeff Mangum
Jeff Mangum recently extended his tour schedule to include cities that he hasn't hit so far during the reunion he's been having with the stage. Meanwhile his journey on the road playing Neutral Milk Hotel songs without the rest of his old band has him down south in places like New Orleans, Orlando and Charleston as part of a series of dates supported by NYC electric folk band Tall Firs (who have shared a bill with Jeff before). Check out all the dates, Barvadon Opera House in Poughkeepsie included, below.
In honor of that tour, which is underway now, we bring to you an exclusive listen of Tall Firs covering Kinks/Dave Davies classic "Death Of A Clown". Listen, and check out the dates, below...
