SPACE IS THE PLACE
The shit-hot One Step Beyond mega-gatherings hosted by The Fader are pretty good at nabbing the hottest things going—past guests include Moby, Nick Catchdubs, Simian Mobile Disco, and a Kanye appearance—and getting them to rock the cosmic confines of the Rose Center for Earth and Space. The space-cadets-of-the-moment and Pazz & Jop shoo-ins Animal Collective are natural fits for the spherical home of hundreds of Galileo-style epiphanies and various bad acid trips. Tonight, the Animals will be DJing instead of performing, giving their fans the ultimate mixtape—no problem, since their tastes proudly run the gamut from vintage 60s rare groove psych-folk, ooky 70s horror soundtracks, gleeful 80s new wave, trancetastic 90s dub techno, contemporary Syrian shredders, and the various musky haunted mush they constantly push out on their Paw-Tracks label.
