(((folkYEAH!))) promotes the most interesting music events in Northern California, hosting numerous shows in Big Sur and the Santa Cruz Mountains. Next week, honcho Britt Govea has two big performances: Animal Collective on Wednesday, May 27, and an extra special all night gathering dedicated to ambient music on Thursday, May 28 called Tonalism.

Tonalism goes from 4:20 p.m. to 5 a.m. at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur and offers two stages of electronic and acoustic music: Windy & Carl, White Rainbow, Nudge, Mia Doi Todd; side projects by members of Dungen and Animal Collective; DJ sets by Andy Cabic of Vetiver, Jimmy Tamborello, and members of  co-presenters dublab; and lots more. There are over two dozen artists and DJs planned for the event, which includes a visual element as well.

The promoters hope folks will bring pillows and dress all cozy, as attendees are allowed to doze a little as the evening turns into morning. Only 300 tickets (and free cups of tea) are available for the special show.

Bonus: We have a free pair of tickets available for the first commenter to describe their favorite pillow below.
