Animal Collective

. February 27, 2013.

They’re still pretty young, but Animal Collective is looked upon as the godfathers of the contemporary Brooklyn indie-rock scene. In the late 90s, their fuzzy, acid-soaked wall of experimental ambience promoted them to hipster royalty, and ten albums into a storied tenure (the latest being 2012’s Centipede Hz) the four-piece’s psychedelic strangeness has catapulted them to nationwide cult-hereo status.

Royal Oak Music Hall, 318 W. 4th St. Royal Oak. 248-399-2980. www.royaloakmusictheatre.com —SR
