While the freak-pop phenomenon known as Animal Collective isn't quite a stadium band, yet, we sure as hell didn't expect to see an Ottobar show pop up on its tour schedule. But here it is: Sunday, May 10 at 7 p.m. Tickets are available only at the venue (2549 N Howard St.) for cash-only at the following times: Wednesday, March 4: 9 p.m.-midnight; Thursday, March 5: 6-9 p.m.; Friday, March 6: 6-9 p.m.; Wednesday, March 11 through Friday, March 13: 6-9 p.m.; every Wednesday thereafter: 6-9 p.m. It's now sold out. Note that opening the show is Grouper, a sublime, ambient folk project that gets into the blood like the darkest drug you can imagine.
