Even with thunderstorms in the forecast, people showed up....

Animal Collective @ South Street Seaport, NYC - June 1, 2007
Animal Collective @ South Street Seaport

For every person that thought this show sucked, there's someone who thought it was amazing. I thought it was a great time - there's the water, the boats, the air, the beer, the sky, the mall, random tourists, thousands of kids in attendance (some tripping), the occasional baby, Wall St people getting drinks after work, Animal Collective's (trippy) music coming from the stage, and cars going by - well, not the best place for an Animal Collective show - especially one where they played so many new songs, but nice nonetheless. Some more photos of the crowd at my Flickr. An Alabama review, new album info, and more dates HERE.
