Animal Collective @newtown

WOW. Animal Collective at @newtown last night were simply awesome. The band members arrived a little after 10.30 in various states of dress, Avey Tare was wearing pyjamas, Geologist was sporting nice glow-in-the-dark bones, Deakin seemed to be wearing a sunflower headmask, whilst Panda Bear was happy to just have a Daft Punk t-shirt. They began with a great rendition of the moving Daffy Duck, before moving onto Fireworks and then blistered through Purple Bottle which sent the crowd into a frenzy. Other standouts were the popular Grass and my favourite Banshee Beat which was simply stunning. After an hour of half of high energy and unique music they closed with a boisterous version of We Tigers which had the crowd begging for more. They returned to play Kids On Holidays, leaving everyone very satisfied. Only down note, no Winters Love.
