It’s pretty much word that the two bands to come from the Bmore area in the past few years are Beach House and Animal Collective. We’ve got tix to see one of them.

Animal Collective consists of Avey Tare (David Portner), Panda Bear (Noah Lennox), Deakin (Josh Dibb), and Geologist (Brian Weitz). Records released under the name Animal Collective may include contributions from any or all of these members; the lineup is not uniform. The band members met in school and started recording together in various forms of collaboration from a young age.[1] The group also runs the record label Paw Tracks on which they have released their own material as well as that of other artists.
In 2009, they released the album Merriweather Post Pavillion which they will be performing at…Merriweather Post Pavillion on Sat. night. We’re giving away 2 tix. Goto our FB page and check out the contest.
