Neutral Milk Hotel return to play their first Los Angeles show since 1998. With inventive instrumentation and fervent songs written by Jeff Mangum, the band released In the Aeroplane Over the Sea in 1998, which went on to gain cult status. The band, however, went on indefinite hiatus following the release of the album. Now reunited, Neutral Milk Hotel have been touring to critical acclaim including performances at major festivals. A reunited Breeders will also perform to celebrate the anniversary of their platinum album Last Splash. Iconic musician and heartbreaking songwriter Daniel Johnston will open the outdoor performance at the Hollywood Bowl. Learn More

A most interesting interpretation with excellent use of cinema to enhance this avant garde performance. Jessye Norman's voice is always amazing and Neena Freelon is wonderful to hear as were the two other performers The drummer was a joy and the orchestra and conductor innovative. In all it was good. It was hard to read the subtitles on the screen unless one had binoculars, which I did. Hard to keep hold them throughout. Not sure how else it could have been done. The repetition was at times tedious.

More on the experimental side; we did enjoy the production; too bad the captions on the video were not better presented -- too small for my old eyes & the white on light colors was hard; wonderful attempt at blending symphonic and jazz styles;...continued
This heady mixture weaves the collective memories of America and the hopes for its future into a tapestry of orchestral music and sound samples.
