Animal Collective's Avey Tare Tours North America

Published: 2006-11-15
Avey Tare, a core member of the group Animal Collective is hitting some North American cities this winter.

Tare, also known as David Portner, will be joined on the road by wife Kristin Anna Valtysdottir of the Iceland group Mum. Valtysdottir is going by the name of Kria Brekken for the tour.

After releasing their seventh album Feels in 2005, Animal Collective reissued an out of print live LP Hollinndagain earlier this year. The four-piece band consists of Avey Tare, Panda Bear, Deakin and Geologist. Critics have a hard time labeling their ever changing sound that has been described as everything from experimental pop to psych-folk. The Animal Collective line-up often changes with each release.

The tour kicks off in New York on November 26. Avey Tare and Kria Brekken will make a few stops in Canada:

November 30, Toronto, ON - Sneaky Dee's
December 1, Montreal, QC - Main Hall
December 2, Ottawa, ON - Mavericks
