Music Tapes’ Koster Comes Caroling


What’s that sound

By Blurt Staff


Julian Koster of the Music Tapes and Neutral Milk Hotel wants
to come to your house and sing Christmas carols. Specifically, he’s taking his
Singing Saw Symphony on the road in two weeks and is soliciting invites from
YOU, gentle readers. It’s all part of an intriguing promotion
for the SSS’s holiday album, The Singing Saw at Christmastime, which
dropped recently courtesy Merge.



If you sign up for the tour, Koster & Co. will literally
carol you into a state of ecstatic Christmas Cheer – all you have to do is
invite them.  He’ll play songs of The Music Tapes and the Saws will play
their holiday favorites for hosts and their assembled guests.



Households who would like to invite Julian and his friends
to come carol may do so by sending an invitation to  or
by mailing a written invitation to:  




C.O. G.Stewart

175 Talmadge St

Apt 1

Athens, GA 30605



Written invitations will be given priority, as well as
invitations where the invitees indicate that they would be willing to entertain
outside guests on caroling night.  Once the limit on houses on a given
night has been reached, the addresses of each of the houses that will welcome
guests will be distributed via email to all others who wish to attend. The
addresses of the houses will not be posted online.
