Jeff Mangum, indie rock’s most enigmatic figure, will return to the stage to perform full solo sets this fall.  Today, the singer announced five extra performance dates and locations.  The tour will now begin on August 8th in Burlington, VT.

  This brief tour is remarkable not just because Mangum released one of the best indie rock albums of the 1990s, In The Aeroplane Over The Sea, but because he basically disappeared soon after that.  Since the 1998 release of that now classic album, his second with the band Neutral Milk Hotel, Mangum has reemerged only occasionally to contribute to various projects.  His live appearances have been incredibly rare, and he’s generally been regarded as a recluse.
