A repeat of ANIMAL COLLECTIVE and BLACK DICE’s back-to-back performances from 2004 at The Empty Bottle. Were you here? Who cares! Come see it again.

The strange, shimmering star at the center of the early 2000s psych-pop revival, ANIMAL COLLECTIVE garnered both critical plaudits and rabid, devoted acolytes by blending Brian Wilson-esque vocal harmonies with spaced-out instrumentation, tribal percussion and odd ribbons of sound. As their name implies, the group is more a loose aggregation of performers rather than a standard rock band. Each of the members assumes a kind of nom de psych under which they record: David Portner is Avey Tare, Noah Lennox is Panda Bear, Josh Dibb is Deacon and Brian Weitz calls himself Geologist. The names add an air of both mystery and personality to an already bizarre and singular group. It's music is defined by a sonic restlessness, and an ability to change sounds and styles — sometimes radically — from album to album.

Hailed as sonic groundbreakers or derided as alienating and pretentious, Brooklyn's BLACK DICE push the limits of hardcore and noise rock. The group debuted in early 1998 with a single on Gravity Records, and released Semen of the Sun on Tapes Records. BLACK DICE released their debut full-length in 2000, followed by a split with Erase Errata and Cold Hands in 2001. The following year they abandoned their rock leanings and embraced the electronics that had previously peppered their avant hardcore approach. They've been on a never-ending always-evolving sonic rollercoaster ever since.
