Neutral Milk Hotel stops in San Pedro for Farewell Tour

May 27, 2015 Doors: 7:00 PM  | Show: 8:00 PM 
 
During one of their last tours "of the foreseeable future," Goldenvoice presents Neutral Milk Hotel at the Warner Grand Theatre thanks to the Council Office of Joe Buscaino.
 
Neutral Milk Hotel is an indie rock band formed by singer, guitarist, and songwriter Jeff Mangum. Their first two albums, released in the late 90s, are noted for their eclectic and experimental sound, which paved the way for modern indie bands such as Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Beirut, Franz Ferdinand, Bright Eyes and The Decemberists.  
 
Jeff Magnum has referred to one of his main influences being San Pedro local band, The Minutemen.  He describes one of his first experiences listening to them in this 1997 Puncture Magazine interview
 
"I remember when I was 14 and heard it, I thought, "This is the craziest, f---ing most insane scream I've ever heard in my life!" And it scared the s--t out of me. A lot of the music I discovered when I was 14 really scared me, but I loved it. I didn't quite understand it, and it was so extreme. But then you start to understand"
 
In early 2013, the band reunited and began touring, but early this year they announced a 2015 tour with the following message: 
 
 
 
$1 from each ticket to benefit the Children of the Blue Sky charity, founded by Martina Radwan.
