To coincide with their ATP fest (TMT News), which was recently sweetened by the likes of Terry Riley, Orthrelm, Big Boi, and Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 (not to be confused with Steve Reich, Ocrilim, André 3000, and Soul Asylum), the boys of Animal Collective have announced a string of European dates, which we’re guessing is an effort to make the whole trip, you know, “cost-effective” or something. Jeez, always thinking about money, these boys.
