ANIMAL COLLECTIVE / SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE
Having recently released Time Skiffs, Animal Collective will be on tour starting next week with L'Rain.

Feist has announced multi-night spring residencies in Denver (April 22 & 23 at The Buell Theatre), Los Angeles (April 26 & 27 at Shrine Auditorium), Seattle (April 30 & May 1 at Paramount Theatre) and Stanford, CA (May 5-7 Memorial Auditorium). The shows are called "Multitudes" and feature "all new music written and performed by Feist and accompanied by Todd Dahlhoff and Amir Yaghmai." Additionally, the shows feature "an intimate, radically communal, and topsy-turvy production that muddies the roles between audience and performer, observer and its subject. We are welcomed to sit back and watch, or raise our voices in collective anonymity. Anything goes." Head here for more details.
