Just Announced: Neutral Milk Hotel returns to Philly to play Tower Theater and Union Transfer in January

Despite talk of retirement, Jeff Mangum instead is bringing his full-on Neutral Milk Hotel on the road this winter, playing The Tower Theater on January 29th and Union Transfer on January 30th. Tickets for both shows go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. Below, listen to the lovely title track from their 1998 album In The Aeroplane Over the Sea, and watch The Avett Brothers covering it, y’know, just because. Man, what kind of sweet double bill would that be?
