Imagine that you, an irrationally fixated Elephant 6 fan, could wander into a rambling mid-century house in Athens, Georgia, and hang out with your favorite Elephant 6 Collective members. That you could play cards with Jeff Mangum, discuss art theory with Will Cullen Hart, quiz Heather McIntosh about what it was like to be a touring bass and cello player with Lil Wayne and Gnarls Barkley. None of that will probably ever happen, but the Elephant 6 Holiday Tour will allow you to witness, in a controlled, not-as-intimate-as-ideal setting, all of these incestuous retro-pop revivalist outfits—you know, Circulatory System, Elf Power, Music Tapes, Olivia Tremor Control, et al.—perform one another's songs, trade off on instruments, and so forth. There will be short films. The audience will get to participate. And maybe, just maybe, you'll have a chance to ask Bill Doss why he went around calling himself "The Bill Doss" for a couple of years there. 18+.
