The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library Tour Recap Day 5: Gabe’s – Iowa City, IA !!! (Neutral Uke Hotel, Golden Bloom)

We headed out to Iowa City on Easter, expecting to play to absolutely no one. To our great surprise, a small, but solid and enthusiastic gang joined us to celebrate Neutral Milk Hotel’s _In the Aeroplane Over the Sea_.

Before the show, we found a giant cow and played some songs in front of it…

We closed the evening with booker Andrew singing “Oh Sister” to help us celebrate!
