Born out of the acid-pop collective Elephant 6 and the mind of singer-songwriter-guitarist Jeff Mangum, Neutral Milk Hotel were one of the best and most distinctive indie bands of the Nineties. With their second album, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, the group produced a bona fide rock classic, only to quietly disband and withdraw completely from the public eye just as they were gaining a sizeable audience. They've achieved cult status over the years and returned last year with a reunion that is set to end with this tour. They noted on their website that these northeast dates are the last for the foreseeable future.
