Indie Rock forefathers Neutral Milk Hotel to Play Uptown Theater on February 13th
Neutral Milk Hotel, the pioneers of the “fuzz-folk” movement will make their way to Kansas City this February for the first time since the late 1990’s. Essentially the workings of singer-songwriter Jeff Magnum, Neutral Milk Hotel’s 1998 breakthrough album “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea” has influenced many of today’s indie-folk bands, including Bon Iver, Arcade Fire, Iron & Wine, and The Shins.
Magnum and his collective of musicians that make up NMH are currently in the midst of their first tour in 14 years. They’ll stop at the Uptown Theater on February 13th. Thanks to a tip from the secondary market data trackers TiqIQ, Those looking for Neutral Milk Hotel tickets are encouraged to explore the re-sale market. Currently, the cheapest General Admission Orchestra ticket in the door is $30 – 32% below the face price of $44. Overall, tickets for this date average $123 – 21% below of the tour average of $155 and far less than the aforementioned Arcade Fire tickets at the Starlight Theatre in April.
With only around 100 of these GA tickets available on the secondary market and the show being nearly sold-out on the primary market, it’s better to act sooner rather than later. It may be another 14 years before you can hear the signature singing saw in “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea” performed live again.
Neutral Milk Hotel performs at the Uptown Theater in Kansas City, MO on Thursday February 13th at 8:00pm. Supporting act will be Elf Power.
