    fwiw, it’s not actually any of those bands touring, this is the press release info:

    “The Elephant 6 orchestra consists of Will Cullen Hart, Bill Doss, Peter Erchick, John Fernandes, Julian Koster, Scott Spillane, Andrew Rieger, Laura Carter, Derek Almstead , Heather McIntosh, Bryan Poole, Theo Hilton, Robbie Cucchiaro and others that will play the music of The Olivia Tremor Control, Elf Power, Circulatory System, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Gerbils, Nana Grizol, Major Organ and Adding Machine, Pipes You See, Pipes You Don’t, plus games, films & other surprises.”

    but yes, would be pretty damn cool if Jeff showed up at a few of these like he did on the 2008 version of it.

    So what your saying is, even if every single member of Olivia Tremor Control will on on this tour, and they will be playing OTC songs, I still can’t say that the band is actually playing?

    Sort of like saying “Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney will be going on tour playing sets of Black Keys covers. This won’t be a Black Keys tour though.”

    Plus, probably half these people are in multiple E6 bands listed. I think it is probably as close to full band lineups for many of these bands as we are going to see

  4. solace says:

    hah, well your initial post makes it sound like all of those bands are playing is all, it’s a bit misleading as it’s a bunch of E6 alumni playing the songs of those bands, rather than those bands in full. :).

    plus i don’t see Eric Harris on that list re: OTC ;P
