You might recall that Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum played two nights at St. John's 2640 Space in 2011. Well, he must have liked the venue a bunch, because it appears NMH will be kicking off its North American tour at 2640 on October 11th. All of Pitchfork nation will be turning out for this one, and tickets go on sale this Friday at noon (at Red Emma's, Charmington's Cafe, and through missiontix.com). Elf Power opens. I see local legends Half Japanese will be opening a handful of other dates, including an October 25 show in Asheville with Daniel Johnston. Wow.
