WARM UP: ANIMAL COLLECTIVE
Friday 2.45-4.00 pm Which Stage | Full Schedule
Baltimore-by-way-of-NYC freak-pop group Animal Collective hits Bonnaroo on a high note, riding in on critical acclaim for eighth album "Merriweather Post Pavilion," released in January on Domino Records. Chopped-up folk, sunny-day pop hooks, exploratory noise experiments: nearly anything's fair game for the eclectic trio, set to bring its energy to the secondary main stage early in the heat of Friday afternoon. --Troy Carpenter
