Dent May @ BV-CMJ 2009 (more by Chris La Putt)
Dent May

A few nights earlier, I tried and failed to see Dent May at a late-night show, but I figured I'd give it another shot, so I headed over to the Cake Shop after the BrooklynVegan CMJ show at MHOW Thursday night, and was delighted to see that they were running on schedule. I thought I was tired at that point, but I've got to hand it to Dent May and his friend Bobby for their dedication to the cause. "We drove 20 hours straight to be with you. Our car got towed. We've been threw a lot of shit, and we love it," May said by way of introduction. A quick look at Bobby's zombie-like stare as he sat, waiting for the show to start, revealed just how tired he was. In addition to their lengthy sojourn to New York, it was their last show of the week and the third of the day. Luckily, their music is upbeat and undeniably catchy. When they started to play, they sprang to life, and many of the people in the audience began to dance.

Dent May doesn't have any more dates on his schedule, but he is on the lineup of the just-announced All Tomorrow's Parties curated by Animal Collective taking place May 13th-15th at at Butlins Holiday Centre in Minehead, UK. Full initial lineup announcement below...

We are very pleased to invite one of the most exciting indie success stories of the last decade to curate the only ATP festival weekend of May 2011. Animal Collective's last album Merriweather Post Pavilion was hailed with universal acclaim; 5 Stars from Uncut, 8/10 from NME and a 9.6 from Pitchfork, who also named it their album of the year and put it in their top 20 albums of the decade. ATP promoter Barry Hogan: "I always wondered what kind of mixtape Animal Collective would put together, so we are really stoked that they are climbing into the curating hot seat at Butlins next May where they will headline and curate the festival that includes the likes of Lee Scratch Perry and Gang Gang Dance from an already eclectic mix of 40+ acts."

"We've been threw a lot of shit" - cringe.

Yeah, I heard they are done with, too. It's a shame. I guess that's what happens in bands when you start putting out bad solo records. Jealousy sucks.

Posted by Anonymous | October 27, 2010 12:07 PM

^ is that a joke?
everyones solo records have been very well recieved and they are playin this thing so there must be some shows next year=not breaking up.

What's with all the AC-"curated" events? Do these things really attract people like the regular AC shows do?

Posted by Anonymous | October 27, 2010 2:16 PM

The AC curated shows generally have free hummus available so the people come far and wide to attend such a festivity.

Posted by Anonymous | October 27, 2010 4:09 PM

Oh. I was sure that it was all the free coke being handed around in various areas at the venues. I know that gets them going for sure. Yippee!

Never heard an AC solo record I could say was all that great. That includes Person Pitch.

Posted by Anonymous | October 27, 2010 7:48 PM

Damn, I didn't know that AC broke up. Oh well, they'll be another band around the corner we'll all attach to.

Posted by Anonymous | October 28, 2010 10:01 AM

yeah person pitch is overrated. i mean, comfy in nautica is definitely not one of the greatest album openers of all time. and all those ambient pitch perfect vocal harmonies in bros probably required no effort or talent.

i like turtles.

Haven't heard Person Pitch before (it's not an AC record though, only Panda Bear). How is it compared to MPP?

Due to all of the people who will be clogging the ticket website buying Take That tickets tomorrow morning, we have decided to push back the ATP Animal Collective on-sale time to 1pm on Friday 29th (tomorrow) so that it will be easier for you to access the site and get the tickets you want. So it's the same day but a few hours later!

Is Animal Collective not playing? When did they break up?

Posted by Anonymous | October 28, 2010 12:00 PM

THEY DID NOT BREAK UP. SHUT UP.

Posted by Anonymous | October 28, 2010 12:25 PM

In a recent interview, Panda Bear claims that the Animal Collective Band is on hiatus after enduring such a rigorous touring schedule. He is 'focusing on his own shit' for a while, and also says that there are times when we just don't get along and feel like the band is done.'

Posted by Anonymous | October 28, 2010 1:02 PM

SHIT - can we get refunds for the show? Can't believe they broke up!

Posted by Anonymous | October 28, 2010 3:52 PM

Does anyone know the reason why Animal Collective broke up? Unbelievable.

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2010 1:44 PM

Posted by Anonymous | November 1, 2010 10:11 AM
