Well done to all concerned who pulled off the Animal Collective late-night show in Whelan’s in Dublin last night.

The gig was supposed to be on in Tripod but was cancelled when the band missed their ferry. Well, they obviously got another ferry or a flight because a lot of mobile phones started to go mad from 7pm onwards with texts about the rescheduled show at Whelan’s.

By all accounts (more texts from the likes of Pedro), it was a fabulous gig – though there seems to be at least one fan who is not amused by what happened.
