Jeff Mangum: Live at the Schoolhouse
Normally, I would post something like this on Facebook, but I'm increasingly finding that being "friends" with so many different people means that only a quarter of them will have any interest in what I might be excited about, and the other three quarters will just be annoyed. This quandary is why someone has a vanity project web site, though, right?
Anyway, Jeff Mangum, bard, genius, recluse, etc, played a very low key show in New York last night, and a kind soul has posted some recordings here.
The prospect that Mr. Mangum might be emerging back into the world of music has me all a twitter (but not on Twitter...err..). There are a lot of people out there who don't understand the fascination with him and don't particularly like the music. I don't understand what it is about him, but In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is one of those desert island discs for me.
And finally, if you can't get enough of live Jeff Mangum, go to Youtube!
