Animal Collective @ The Pageant (10/25/2013)



Opener:
  • Deradoorian.  Not particularly fond.
Setlist:
  • Seemed like they mixed in stuff from a bunch of their albums.  Considering that I really only like (and am familiar with) their last two albums, despite having them all, I coulda done without some of it.  But my BIGGEST complaint is that they didn't play their best song - "My Girls".
Stage:
  • Blow-up lighted semi-arch things with video projection the whole time.  Interesting.
Observations:
  • Geologist wears a head lamp while performing.
  • Most of the song transitions/intros/outros were too long for my taste, especially the glitchy ones.
  • Their live sound doesn't quite match the studio magic.
    High/low-lights:
    • The live version of "Brother Sport" is apparently a dance party.
    • I was literally dumbfounded when they closed the encore without having played "My Girls".
    Rating: 3.8/5
