Elephant 6 fans, and especially Neutral Milk Hotel fans, tend to be a little obsessive, so most of them probably already know that NPR is streaming the show that the Elephant 6 Holiday Surprise Tour played at the Bottom Lounge last week.

For those of you who don't have shrines to Jeff Mangum in your living rooms, though, the E6HST is a bunch of very talented, very weird musicians with a flair for the psychedelic sitting in on each other's songs and generally just having a blast, so the show is a pretty fun listen. SPOILER ALERT: Neutral Milk Hotel did not get back together. And also the big group jam on NMH's "Engine" got cut from the stream "at the artist's request." SPOILER ALERT FROM THE FUTURE: Neutral Milk Hotel never gets back together and Jeff Mangum is just messing with you guys.
