Animal Collective, the NY/Baltimore-based indie/psychedelic/experimental group, has confirmed their first round of shows in support of their next release, Merriweather Post Pavilion.
To celebrate their new release, Animal Collective will be playing a show (party?) that night at New York’s Grand Ballroom. The band is playing similar high-profile venues in the United States, leading fans in as-yet-unannounced cities to wonder where they’ll catch Animal Collective this time.
