It's an evening of psychedelic pop surrealism as the ELEPHANT 6 HOLIDAY SURPRISE TOUR comes to the Pike Room! Music Tapes frontguy/Neutral Milk Hotel member Julian Koster describes this event as something like “a big orchestra, variety show, silly happy thing.” The tight-knit, loosely-defined Georgia-based psych-rocking collective will assemble to celebrate the music of Olivia Tremor Control, Circulatory System, the Music Tapes, Elf Power, the Gerbils, Scott Spillane, Nana Grizol, Nesey Gallons, and more. Joining Koster on the trek are Will Cullen Hart of Olivia Tremor Control, Scott Spillane of the Gerbils and Neutral Milk Hotel, Laura Carter of Elf Power, Eric Harris of OTC and Circulatory System, Nesey Gallons, and whoever else they can fit in the van. And they'll be bringing along “Major Organ and the Adding Machine,” a short film by Joey Foreman and Eric Harris which will make its premiere on this tour. The film and its music stand as the consummate collaboration of the Elephant Six collective, and features musical and theatrical contributions from Jeff Mangum (Neutral Milk Hotel), Kevin Barnes (of Montreal), William Cullen Hart, Julian Koster, Andrew Rieger, Dixie Blood Moustache and all and sundry who participated in the hyper-creative halcyon days of late-90’s Athens, Georgia.
