Animal Collective August 14, 09

This Baltimore trio's freak show in Prospect Park on Friday was uplifting and refreshing in a trippy way. This "Collective" has dived in head first into psychedelia, folk, and noise rock experimentation. This sonic experience has brought them through their eighth album. Being the last weekend of shows in the park, the young people seemed pleased at the promoter's choice of ambient Indie Pop. First Black Dice warmed up the crowed on an all ready hot day. Then Avey Tare, Panda Bear, The Geologist came out on a creative stage with tiki heads, and puppet background with moving waves and killer sharks. The great stage props where done by sister and friends. Live you see the many diverse styles this fee flowing group has to offer. Playing "My Girls" early in the set and then saving "Guys Eyes" for the second song in the three part encore, they covered lots of ground in almost two hours. Strange and fun at the same time, only this from Animal Collective.
