WHO: KCRW’s World Festival featuring Animal Collective, Flying Lotus + Huun Huur Tu
WHEN: Sunday, September 23rd @ 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: Hollywood Bowl @ 2301 North Highland Avenue, Los Angeles, CA
TICKET GIVEAWAY: Enter for a chance to win (2) tickets by leaving a comment below with your favorite Animal Collective album!

In what is perhaps the single most intriguing bill on the LA fall calendar, two of the most sonically ambidextrous and unpredictably innovative forces in music today will share the legendary Hollywood Bowl stage on September 23rd. Two LMB favorites, Baltimore’s Animal Collective and LA’s own Flying Lotus, will be joined by Huun Huur Tu, a throat-singing group haling from Siberia. It’s an exciting time for fans of both headlining acts, with Centipede Hz, Animal Collective’s long-anticipated follow-up to their watershed 2009 LP Merriweather Post Pavilion just hitting shelves and Flying Lotus touring in support of his forthcoming record Until The Quiet Comes (Out 10/2/12 on Warp Records). AnCo / FlyLo is the kind of campaign ticket LMB we can get behind in 2012.

TO ENTER CONTEST: Give us the name of your favorite Animal Collective album in the comments box below and a winner will be selected at random and notified a few days before the show. MAKE SURE TO LEAVE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS SO WE CAN NOTIFY YOU IF YOU’VE WON. Good luck!

    Merriweather Post Pavilion was the soundtrack to the summer I had the most unusual relationship of my life. He was one of those boys from the east coast that I thought I would never see again nor miss. A series of strange events brought him very much back into my life and through our random adventures in Utah’s summer landscape, and to the tunes of this Animal Collective album (one of the four CDs that circulated through our humble car audio system), I slowly reconsidered how I felt about him. By the time I felt brave enough to share these with him it was time for him to return to his east coast school to finish his last year of college and eventually date his current girlfriend. We both knew we were more than hopeful that something could work out, but we also knew we could not be in the same place at the same time to have a chance to see that happen. Because of my deeply embedded association with Merriweather Post Pavillion, I am struck with nostalgia of so many kinds, all taking place in that white Geo. “My Girls,” for example, can hit a chord back when we first took a ride together and it was just Animal Collective and our painfully awkward shy silence. Or it can be the background to our debate over the role of religion in today’s society and how we both see ourselves religiously in the future. I am writing this last sentence to this lonnnnnnnng comment I have written in an attempt to describe the importance of this album to me but I still cannot quite articulate what it is I feel every time I listen to it, how my memories resurface and layer up on top of each other, and why I still feel like there is even a grain of hope in this relationship.
