The Elephant 6 collective featuring a wide variety of seasoned, indie rock veterans, will revive their Holiday Surprise tour in 2011. They first took the show on the road in 2008, and will do it once again from February 24 to March 26, 2011.
The tour will feature Bill 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 more. In addition to music, their will also be screenings of short films as well as games led by Julian Koster.
The last stop on the tour will be at Kings Barcade in Raleigh on Saturday, March 26. Tickets are on sale now via etix for $10.
Reclusive Neutral Milk Hotel frontman Jeff Magnum made a few appearances on the 2008 tour, so maybe he'll make an appearance in Raleigh. That would certainly be something to see and hear.
