PANDA BEARFacebook | Twitter | Website"The music Noah Lennox makes as Panda Bear exists in a trippy universe unto itself, one that's parallel to his work as part of pioneering alternative band Animal Collective but without its fraternal, organic mysticism. Using samplers and extensively processed instrumentation, the 36-year-old cobbles together arrangements that range from sunny and kaleidoscopic (like the songs on 2007's acclaimed Person Pitch) to melancholic and reverential (2011's Tomboy) and glues them together with singing that's simple and sticky." -BillboardAbout the Show:Doors 7:30pm / Show 8:30pmWhen Panda Bear met the Grim Reaper, they jammed. Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear, a.k.a. one-fourth of the founding members of Animal Collective, has had a far-from-quiet few years since the release of his fourth solo record, 2011’s Tomboy. Since the breakout success of 2007’s universally-adored Person Pitch, each new Panda Bear release is a highly anticipated event, and with a high-profile Daft Punk collaboration later, that’s more the case than ever. But if the title of his fifth solo album as Panda Bear seems to portend certain doom, think again. Taking his inspiration from ‘70s dub duo albums like King Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown and Augustus Pablo Meets Lee Perry & the Wailers Band, Panda Bear prefers to frame his latest work as less of a battle and more a collaboration. “I see it [as] more comic-booky, a little more lighthearted,” he says. “Like Alien Vs. Predator.”
