Magnetic Fields Get Uked for Neutral Uke Hotel

Tickets are all sold out for Shawn Fogel/Golden Bloom's evening of Neutral Uke Hotel this Friday, May 7 in Somerville, MA. We all know Fogel's gone uke crazy and we're not the only ones taking the instrument more seriously.

The Motion Sick's Michael Epstein and Fogel have collaborated many times and a little birdie (named Michael) told us he's going to make a special appearance at the Neutral Uke Hotel. The thing is, he needs to learn how to play the tiny guitar first. So he thought he'd give another seminal indie band a ukulele spin. Epstein decided that he'd learn to play by converting songs by The Magnetic Fields onto the ukulele. Epstein has captured many of his sessions on live video and shared us the links to see a handful of the videos.

Here's our favorite (today): The Magnetic Fields' "All the Umbrellas in London"
