On Friday I got to see my favorite band, Neutral Milk Hotel, at the Orpheum Theater in Boston. Crappy iPhone photos not withstanding, it was awesome.
As you can see we were way up in the rafters, but the sound was incredible. Neutral Milk Hotel are known for their folksy, distortion-heavy, experimental concept albums. Horns and accordions accompany lead singer Jeff Mangum’s nasal tenor in a chest-filling cacophony that compels you to sing along.
Here’s a sample snippet if you haven’t heard of them (and are open to trying something new!):
I don’t get to many live shows so this was a real treat for Alan and me.
What concerts stories do you have? Favorite bands? I’d love to hear!
