Jeff Mangum to return to the stage in 2012

Okay, so I’ll admit my day hadn’t been going quite as planned. But it’s hard to be depressed about anything when you learn one of indie music’s most reclusive modern songwriters is going to actually make more live appearances in 2012. According to Pitchfork, Mangum will be playing a string of dates in the US and Europe, including two-night stints at Chicago’s Athenaeum Theater and Atlanta’s 40 Watt Club.

Surely these dates are going to sell out insanely fast, but if any one musician is worth fighting it out for tickets, Mangum would be among most music fans’ top five. The dates are below, and for kicks, enjoy this live version of “The King of Carrot Flowers 1 – 3” from 2001:
