Review: Animal Collective Perform ‘Sung Tongs’ at the Fox Theater

On a bustling Monday evening riding the tail end of July, an electric crowd in Oakland's Fox Theater stood hollering with eyes wide open, entranced by visual artist and musician Lonnie Holley's otherworldly take on rock and roll. Holley was joined on stage by a trombone player and guitarist who lifted his lyrics above and beyond the balcony, which addressed feelings of interconnectedness and called out the current discordant state of American society. His song, "I Woke Up in a F****d-Up America" from his recently-released album, MITH, dug into the sweaty skin of the huddled-together audience who continued to pass [...]

Review: The 2013 Treasure Island Music Festival

This year's Treasure Island Music Festival attracted a diverse crowd, most of which partied way too hard during the high-energy dance sets of Saturday to attend Sunday's more guitar-oriented lineup. Sunday was also much colder, with lines for coffee often stretching beyond lines for beer. Schools of glowing white jellyfish drifted through the festival grounds on handheld sticks, as music fans wandered back and forth between the two stages. Giraffage kicked things off at noon during Saturday's stretch of the festival after an introduction from Noise Pop/Salty Artist Management's Chad Heimann aka Chad Salty, performing sample-driven dance music for the [...]

What we love about Treasure Island's Sunday lineup: Haim, Real Estate, & more

Every year, Treasure Island Music Festival brings two days' worth of scenic music consumption to that island out in the Bay. The way the booking pans out, Saturday rounds up most of the electronic and dance-inducing performers of the weekend, leaving Sunday for indie rock enthusiasts. This year's lineup looks slightly different. Especially for those who enjoy electronic music, the second day lineup for this year's festival is experiencing a slight spillover of said genre artists -- including the relentlessly innovative Animal Collective, the aggressively pop-electro duo Sleigh Bells, and the current king of electronic pop, James Blake. Full disclosure: [...]

Animal Collective performing two nights at The Fox Theater

In support of their highly anticipated new album Centipede Hz, Animal Collective is touring the U.S. and Europe, including two consecutive nights scheduled at The Fox Theater in Oakland. All four members will be performing together on September 21st and 22nd, with support from Micachu and the Shapes. Centipede Hz received mixed reviews as the noisier, more challenging follow-up to 2009's Merriweather Post Pavilion. The album also marks the return of founding member Deakin (Josh Dibb), who sat out during the production of MPP. Centipede Hz, released September 4th on Domino Records, features the single "Today's Supernatural", which was given [...]
