The Music Tapes' 'Travelling Imaginary' tour lands in Castleberry Hill

Posted By on Tue, May 14, 2013 at 11:21 AM

For any of you unlucky souls that missed the boat on Neutral Milk Hotel tickets in Athens and Atlanta, here's another chance for you to catch the Elephant 6 magic in-person. The Music Tapes, longtime Neutral Milk - and E6 - member Julian Koster's surrealistic chamber pop project, is bringing its suitably named, Kickstarter-funded The Traveling Imaginary to Castleberry Hill. Koster has a history of creating one-of-a-kind musical marvels (see the 7-foot Tall Metronome and Static the Singing Television), but this time around the band is touring and performing "in a circus tent, transforming spaces into cozy, dreamlike environments for an evenings' worth of music, games, stories, films, and amusements. The Traveling Imaginary is a long-dreamt-of undertaking on a grander scale than anything we have ever done. You, the audience member, will be an honored guest in The Music Tapes' world - the one in which Julian has lived and recorded in for years." Check out a song below from the Music Tapes' latest album, Mary's Voice, released last year via Merge Records.

$12. Friday, May 24. 9 p.m. Erickson Clock, 364 Nelson St. SW, Atlanta. Tickets on sale now via Ticket Alternative.
