CANCELLED Animal Collective’s David Portner, a.k.a. Avey Tare, has always been fascinated by the idea of an alien band. If you’ve ever experienced the glitchy beatscapes, oddly stretched-out melodies and synthesized digital mayhem of the group’s epic live shows, then you have a taste for what he’s talking about. Tonight the avant-pop MVPs bring their spacey, jammy anthems to Williamsburg's outdoor venue, where they'll celebrate the release of their latest pleasantly perplexing opus, Centipede Hz.
