Neutral Uke Hotel To Tour Doing Exactly What You'd Assume







File this under potentially sacred things we're pretty OK with. Neutral Uke Hotel is Golden Bloom's Shawn Fogel covering Neutral Milk Hotel's In The Aeroplane Over The Sea in its entirety on ukulele. He says he is doing this "to unite obsessed fans of Neutral Milk Hotel for a live performance" of said album. Shawn Fogel even sounds like the name of a guy who would cover NMH on the uke. This is a good thing. Videos of Fogel's covers (such as the one above) began surfacing a few months back, and now he is taking his show on the road. While moments like the brief, but moving Jeff Mangum set in NYC recently will surely not be duplicated, they also won't come around that often.  So why not this? We sure don't know. Dates below.
