"Finally out the hospital." - Zomby

Animal Collective

"Damn... people are gettin at eachother's throats! this is crazy. Anyhow. I'm not sure which night was better... I ate some mushrooms the first night... so I didn't really enjoy dam funk's hour and a half long opening set... Black Dice were good as always, but should've been louder. It was much quieter than when I saw them at the Bowery.

The "re-worked comfy in nautica" is actually a new song called bleed... just for clarification. Personally I found the highlights to be the new Who Could Win A Rabbit and Chores, considering I hadn't heard them play those yet. Everything else was still awesome, though I could've done without daily routine, and IMO they threw away What Would I Want Sky too early.

The second night they opened with Grace... which I've wanted to see since the Grand Ballroom show, so I basically freaked out when I heard it. Also Frightened and #1 also made that set really awesome. All in all great end of the summer." [Anonymous]

Dam-Funk (who plays a free show at Trophy Bar Sunday night) opened both shows in Prospect Park. XXXCHANGE replaced Zomby on Saturday night's bill. Black Dice opened on Friday. Pictures and the setlist from that show HERE. More pictures and some videos from Saturday, below...

Oh yeah the last 3 posters. Best show in the history of shows. Bigger than Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech.

Douchebag morons

guys, Zomby never shows - literally never. once he even sent a mate to play some drum'n'bass instead but still demanded to get paid

Whatever happened to Deakin?

Posted by Anonymous | August 16, 2009 11:39 PM

11:39 - Deakin is just on AC hiatus. He's doing a little bit of his own thing - there was a remix released last week. I hope he comes back soon - I think his absence is partially responsible for the lack of Feels at shows. Though they could always figure out other ways of pulling those songs off, I'm sure.

If animal collective is such a big band, then why are they so f'ing small in these photos?

Posted by Jerry D. | August 17, 2009 12:20 AM

I'm agreeing with J.D. -- i pulled out my magnifying glass and still have yet to see the band.

in Ryans Defense it was really hard to take good photos at that show. They had good lighting for the fans, but horrible lighting for anyone trying to take decent photos IMO.

Unless you are on mushrooms or some pretty serious drugs Animal Collective is stealing your money...

AC were great as always.

Sound was good outside of the bandshell across the bike path under the trees on a blanket popping champagne and eating watermelon

Is 'Grace' new? When did they start playing it?

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2009 12:16 PM

They began playing Grace in the 07-08 tour where the MPP songs first debuted. It was expected by many to be added to the MPP tracklist, and alot of us were very heart-broken not to see it appear. However, saturday night lent a great surprise. The lyrics were a tad bit different, and the opening more abrupt, but it was still basically the same Grace I had fallen in love with. haha
