Animal Collective Rocks Knitting Factory 

Saturday, Sept. 7

One of Treefort Music Fest's biggest announcements this year was that Animal Collective would headline. Consequently, one of the biggest disappointments of this year's festival was that Dave Portner, aka Avey Tare, had strep throat.

Since debuting with Spirit They're Gone, Spirit They've Vanished in 2000, Animal Collective's dreamy, experimental pop and tripped-out live shows have received rave reviews and helped build a devoted fan base. But the band has suffered more hitches recently; in July it was announced that it needed to reschedule some shows due to illness. That same month, Duck Club Presents announced that Dan Deacon wouldn't open this Knitting Factory show. Cross your fingers and knock on wood the headliner doesn't cancel again.
