Animal Collective announce NYC make-up shows, remind us about "Applesauce" 10-inch

Remember last month when Animal Collective cancelled their show in Brooklyn because Davey Tare’s completely unsustainable style of singing landed him a king-size case of shingles? A-ha! Me neither, because it was laryngitis! And his name’s Avey Tare! And his voice is obviously AWESOME! Either way, your ass has just been freakin’ outed as an official Animal Collective Poseur, so you’ll have to sit in the corner over there by the giant foam teeth and papier-mâché icicles listening to Foster the People while I issue the following proclamation to the AnCo Faithful:

The band has just announced a pair of NYC make-up shows at Terminal 5 in Manhattan on December 4 and 5. Fans who purchased tickets for last month’s cancelled Brooklyn dates will be awarded the distinct animal-vantage of being able to purchase tickets for the new shows starting today, before tickets are available to the public on Friday, November 9. (Looks like only the December 5 show is up on Ticketmaster right now, but the December 4 show should pop up here soon, according to the band’s PR animals). Additionally, Animal Collective will be donating some of the proceeds from these shows to the ongoing Red Cross Hurricane Sandy relief effort.

Oh, and don’t forget that the “Applesauce” 10-inch is coming out next week on Domino (we almost successfully reported on that before, but then something much more interesting came up). The B-side, “Crimson,” is streaming here:
