Friday, December 6: Get Wild with Animal Collective

Well, third time's a charm. Making up for the cancelled March and rescheduled-then-cancelled-again July shows, Animal Collective finally returns to town tonight. The highly experimental rock group's last release, Centipede Hz, is a strange and winding album. In comparison to some of their older records like 2004's Sung Tongs or 2009's Merriweather Post Pavilion, Centipede Hz is wilder and punchier. It has a glitchy grunginess to it too. The album's opener "Moonjock" blasts through the speakers with a heavy asymmetrical rhythm while the follow-up, "Today's Supernatural" carries the excitement with fast-paced chaos. The Baltimore-bred five-piece has such momentum, it's hard to pin down what they'll create next (AC member Panda Bear recently made a high-profile appearance on Daft Punk's new record). If you have a ticket to tonight's show, consider yourself lucky and pray the guys don't cancel again. (Stoops)
