Panda Bear: Show Preview

It's generally understood that the Bay Area is a forceful creative cultivator, but when, in 2011, Baltimore's Animal Collective blocked out three rehearsal days at the Phoenix Theater in Petaluma to write new material following up its hugely successful album Merriweather Post Pavilion, the result was Centipede Hz, a scattered, flat affair. Panda Bear to the rescue: That same exact week, the Animal Collective member released Tomboy, which continued his reign as the group's most atmospheric harmonist. Never one to look back, expect new material when Panda Bear returns to the Bay Area this week.
