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!
