Neutral Milk Hotel Will Play Atlanta, Too

If you missed out, like most Athenians, on buying tickets for Neutral Milk Hotel’s first two announced 40 Watt shows on Oct. 22 and 23, and also whiffed, like most Athenians, on procuring tix for the last-minute, locals-only gig on Oct. 24, here’s another, more promising glimmer of hope: a new slew of tourdates has been announced, including a stop at Atlanta’s Tabernacle on Saturday, Oct. 26. Half Japanese will open. 

Tickets are $44.50 with fees, and available here starting this Friday, May 10, at noon. Though demand will doubtlessly be equally high, the Tabernacle is a much bigger venue than the 40 Watt (2,600 capacity compared to 500).

Still, fast fingers will be the name of the game. Memorize your credit card info, and start testing them typin’ skills now. This is indie rock Thunderdome.
