Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Chales St. at 9:00 PM – $10

Thursday, December 11th – Raindeer / Semicircle / Dungeon Kids / Shampoo
The Crown, 1910 N. Charles St. 2nd floor at 9:00 PM – $8

Raindeer lead, Charlie Hughes, recently shook up the band’s lineup and this is one of their first shows after the change. The always impressive, Dungeon Kids, are also on the bill so you will see me this show for sure.

Thursday, December 11th – Animal Collective DJ Set w/ Deakin and Geologist
Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St. 2nd floor at 8:00 PM – $17

Yeah, you read that right. For some reason tickets are still available for Deakin and Geologist’s DJ set at Ottobar on Thursday. Okay, so maybe this isn’t an “Animal Collective” show per say, but it will still be awesome to see half of one of the most successful bands to ever come from Charm City in such an intimate setting.
