Animal Collective Plays Merriweather Post Pavilion July 9

April 18, 2011

It’s actually going to happen. On July 9, the members of Animal Collective will take the stage at Merriweather Post Pavilion, the very same venue whose name they appropriated for their 2009 electro-art-pop masterpiece.

With guitarist Deakin back in the mix, and given the band’s propensity to focus on new material–material that they have all gathered in Baltimore currently to write and develop–it’s impossible to say what exactly this show will be like. Will they play a longer set filled with rarities? Will they play Merriweather Post Pavilion in its entirety, or close to it? All of that remains to be seen.

But something about this concert feels like a special event, like a coronation of Animal Collective as one of the most important bands in alternative music. And it also feels like an affirmation that, no matter where the members live in the world, something about this band will forever be intrinsically linked to Baltimore.

Tickets go on sale April 22 at 10 a.m. through Ticketfly. Information about prices or openers is not yet available.
