Jeff Mangum Concert

Wow!  This was one of the best nights of our lives.  To hear Jeff Mangum live!!!!  For those of you who haven’t heard of him, he used to be in the band Neutral Milk Hotel back in the 90’s.  This set was just him on a chair playing all his best songs with only an acoustic.  His first song was O’ Comely.  My all time favorite.  I couldn’t believe he started with it.  Amazing isn’t strong enough of a word to cover it.  My Jeff introduced me to Neutral Milk back in the early 2000’s when we were dating.  From the beginning I got chills up my spine.

I’m not a music critic.  I wasn’t gifted with a way with words.  I’m not an eloquent writer by any means.  I cannot do him justice.

I have no pictures of the man, per his request.  You can see him performing live during an Occupy Wall Street protest if you are curious.

I just wanted to share some photos of the night.  Mostly so we can have a record for us that THIS REALLY HAPPENED!  Jeff and I agreed that this night will forever be in our mind and hearts, so it’s okay if we don’t have video or pictures of our most favorite musician in the world.  We will survive.

This is a story of two lovebirds who got in a little over their heads, or at times it feels that way, remodeling a little home built in the 1940's. Our journey has bumps and twists, ups and downs, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Please join us and our two poodles as we flip this old house and work towards the adoption of our first child!
