Art Pop band reschedules Covington show for this summer
Tonight's concert by acclaimed Art Pop band Animal Collective (with guest Dan Deacon) has been cancelled due to an illness in the group. The band was due to perform at Covington's Madison Theater.The Covington show is one of five being rescheduled. The group will return to the Madison on July 18; tickets for the original date can be used for the rescheduled one. If you can't make the July show, you can also get a refund at the point of purchase. Animal Collective's tour — in support of its latest, Centipede Hz — is scheduled to resume on Saturday in Chicago.
The garish, densely layered cover art for Animal Collective’s latest album, Centipede Hz,
is just the first sign that the Baltimore-bred Psych Pop crew was
intent on shifting creative gears this time out.
If you've grown complacent with summer festivals that boast packed bills but feature little to no interaction amongst the performers, this Indie Rock-friendly trio has an unusual antitode: In what sounds like a logistical nightmare, the acts (an Indie Punk duo, a gang of four kicking out artsy Post Punk and a one-man whirlpool of bizarre electronic vigor) perform one set together.
