Animal Collective, Dan Deacon, Haerts

When: Fri., Sept. 6, 6 p.m. 2013


It's become increasingly clear how Animal Collective's neon-pagan electronic innovations speak across a variety of genres. As their fellowship grows, the band—superficially defined by drugs and internet-as-audience—has staked its claim as a heady, albeit family-friendly, brew of kinetic energy through a hallucinatory veil. With a stage set like a day-glo playground, Animal Collective's cyberdelic plateau invokes the spiritual reverie of open-air music as hypermodern ritual and communal tradition. Although this one is for the kids, boomers in the audience should expect an obligatory flashback or two. WYATT SCHAFFNER
