Here’s a good quality video of Jeff Mangum and Julian Koster playing the Neutral Milk Hotel song “Engine” as the closing to Lexington’s E6 Holiday Surprise show. It was the last night of the tour and the most impressive musical moment that I’m sure most people that were there have ever seen. It was moving, it was rare and it was kind of Jeff to treat us to it.
This video comes to us from my good friend Chuck, who was also one of the people instrumental in getting the E6 show to happen. Backseat Sandbar has a better quality video of this, including Julian and Scott playing “The Fool” before it, but I can’t bring myself to scoop them on their own video. Just go check over there on Monday or poke around youtube.
