Animal Collective in Austin, TX at Stubbs June 5th

posted by Free Press Houston @ 11:36 PM

Steven Walker (bassist of American Sharks) and I jokingly said that we should sell the tickets
for $60 each and review the show on celphone cameras on
Youtube. We didn't. We went inside and it felt like another hurricane
Houston evacuation. Houston left it's body for the night and drove to
Austin. Some of Riff Tiffs were there. Buxton was there. Mary Ocean (Houston's x-American Apparel employee)
was there along with everyone else in the 713. It was rather difficult
to pay attention to the band due to many "Excuse me's. and
"Hey Dudes!". It was a decent set with "Chores" being an encore
along with the Happy Birthday song to Reverend Green the sound guy. The highlight
of the night was "Daily Routine" and me finding a beer on a picnic table
while Steven was peeing. I told him I bought him a beer and he drank it.
"This is good beer.", Steven said. So if you're reading this Steven, HA!
Animal Collective - good band. People talking and asking you for a
lighter - bad. Next time come to Houston please. Thankyou Kara at
Motor Mouth Media for the tickets.

Agreed; while the new songs were nice, Daily Routines was the definite highlight.

If Free Press and Pegstar found a way to get St. Vincent and Broken Social Scene (the latter to come back, no less..), maybe they can get to work on Animal Collective...

same goes for Maps and Atlases..

Jus' sayin'...
