Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Animal Collective/Dan Deacon

When: Tue., July 16, 8 p.m. 2013

On last year’s Centipede Hz, Animal Collective continues to experiment with odd electronic sounds. The opening track, “Moonjock,” features distorted vocals and tribal drumbeats as what sounds like a choir of munchkins provides backing vocals. It’s weird but also quite celebratory, something the band emphasizes in its high-energy live shows. Opener Dan Deacon, an electronic musician out of Baltimore, headlines shows on his own. His gig last year at the Beachland mixed electronic beats and live instrumentation in an inventive manner. An engaging live performer, Deacon encouraged audience participation and had everyone in the audience dancing by set’s end. Expect similar results tonight when the two acts play a rescheduled date at House of Blues. (Jeff Niesel)
