Jeff Mangum will auction tickets and artwork to benefit Occupied Real Estate.

Jeff Mangum, the Neutral Milk Hotel frontman who recently emerged in earnest for a 2012 tour and Coachella billing, is auctioning 4 signed drawings and 4 tickets to his sold-out BAM show in Brooklyn, NY this Saturday, 1/21/12. Proceeds will be donated to Occupied Real Estate, a project affiliated with the Occupy movement and fronted by Not An Alternative, which focuses its efforts on the foreclosure crisis.

Each package contains 2 front-center tickets and 2 original drawings, signed by Mangum. The auctions start at $300 and will close tomorrow night, a day before the show. Take a look:

The auctions clearly benefit a cause dear to Mangum, who showed up for a surprise performance in the early stages of the OWS protest back in October. Watch an up close and blur-sonal cameraphone video of that performance – all 41 minutes of it – below.
