The performance is over, but you can watch a replay below.
More screen caps, notable quotations and setlist after the break.
This is incredible. At 10pm on Tuesday, Jeff Mangum played an unannounced solo acoustic set for the protesters at Occupy Wall St. Below are some great quotations and a few screen shots from the performance.
Jeff Mangum OWS setlist
1. Themselves (Minutemen cover)
2. Holland, 1945
4. Song Against Sex
5. Two-Headed Boy pt. 2
6. In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
7. King of Carrot Flowers pt. 1
8. Oh Comely
Jeff took requests from the onset. After finishing his first song, he asked the crowd: “I’m here to serve you. What do you want to hear?”
Later, when the liverstreamers asked him to introduce himself to the 4K+ people streaming the performance online he said “I’m Jeff from the band Neutral Milk Hotel” in the most unassuming way possible.
Later, when taking requests, someone yelled at him to “Play some Dylan!” He replied “I only know three chords. Haven’t you noticed?”
Everyone screamed out “We know who our enemies are!” at the end of “Oh Comely.” That was fantastic over the pitiful stream; I’m sure that was a particularly chilling moment to experience live.
Jeff: “You guys have done a beautiful fucking thing.”
Protesters in unison: “You have done a beautiful fucking thing!”
