concert previews Animal Collective, White Magic, and Antelope
Tuesday, March 30, 2004, at the Warehouse Next Door, Washington, DC

When I was a cub, Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are had me dancing and whooping around the living room until I knew every word by heart. New York's Animal Collective roars that same terrible roar and gnashes its terrible teeth, with tribal rhythms and harmonized moans melding one sonic idea into the next. Sung Tongs, the band's upcoming Fat Cat album, is the soundtrack to a journey through jungles, over oceans, and back again to the comfort of your own room—where you, like Max, find that your dinner is still hot. Animal Collective brings the wild rumpus with White Magic and Antelope at 8 p.m. at the Warehouse Next Door, 1017 7th St. NW. $8. (202) 783-3933. (Catherine Lewis)
