Animal Collective Once Played at the Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center
Electronic musician Raglani has been keeping busy in non-performance ways lately: He's been uploading video after video of vintage St. Louis performance videos to a Vimeo account. The result is a treasure trove of experimental, noise, punk and indie videos: The collection features acts such as Hair Police, Darin Gray (as part of Brain Transplant), Magik Markers and Yellow Swans. Check back often, as Raglani appears to be adding more clips daily.
Here's amazing footage of Animal Collective taken in 2003, when the group played the Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center. This is the band whose album Merriweather Post Pavilion just topped the Village Voice's Pazz & Jop critic's poll, a band that's probably Pageant-sized at this point. (Last time in town, in support of Strawberry Jam, AC played the Gargoyle.)
