So I stood about a foot away from Jeff Mangum's right elbow as he played Engine to end the E6 Holiday Surprise tour with Julian Koster on singing saw. Anybody who knows anything about Jeff Mangum knows what a momentous occasion this was. Truly, ridiculously, unbelievably unreal.
The show itself was what one would expect from the most positive traveling commune on the planet- loud and quiet, disasterously beautiful music.

Yeah, magical/sublime ending to what was a pretty light hearted, charming and overall-entertaining show.

I stood in the back by the "backstage" door, and Mangum was standing right next to me most of the show. I wanted really bad to gawk at him, but decided not to be that guy. I almost wish I had been that guy now. Either way, "Engine" ruled. He seemed really into a lot of the show.

he and Julian played "Engine" in Pittsburgh too, but the audience TALKED through their performance. seriously.

He only played one song, "Engine," and sang and danced onstage for the final song of the Elephant 6 troupe.

yes. he was just about to walk out the front door for a smoke... an odd place for a recluse to smoke.

Mike. That's what you get for going to the Martha and the Nuclear Sunshine show. I had an extra ticket and no takers.

I'm so glad I didn't leave as they walked off the stage singing together. I knew something special was afoot. He did just follow them all to Pittsburgh, so I thought there was a possibility he was going to show up. Kind of magical, though I think half the people there had no idea who he was.

O! M! G!

I feel giddy like a little girl and sick to my stomach because I didn't go. I'd have paid $50 just to see/hear him sing "Engine"

Not being a fan of much of the other E6 stuff, I balked...I AM SUCH AN IDIOT :wall:

The best $12.00 I've spent on a concert!

it was awesome.

i enjoyed julian koster and scott spilane's rendition of "the fool", from "in the aeroplane over the sea". you could hear a pin drop.

my jaw dropped to the floor during "engine", though.

shit.

and i got to meet jeff mangum too. i somehow managed to keep my cool.

and, then i got milk an' cookies from that insomnia cookies place across the street, by the tattoo parlor. have you tried that yet? wow.

what a night.
