Neutral Milk Hotel’s Julian Koster brings his latest spectacle to the First Unitarian Church tonight. The bass and singing-saw player has created titled The Music Tapes Present: The Traveling Imaginary, and the project is both a musical performance piece and a mystical escape, like a Bradbury story or Gilliam film. It takes place inside a mystical circus tent created specifically for this tour that’s actually being constructed inside the First Unitarian Church. The Traveling Imaginary tour is in support of The Music Tapes’ latest album Mary’s Voice and continues Koster’s tradition of creating surreal experiences for his audiences. The early show tonight is sold out; tickets are still available for the 10 p.m. show, and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Below, watch a trailer for The Music Tapes’ Traveling Imaginary.
