Animal Collective Boston Listening Party!

WZBC was asked by Animal Collective and Domino Records to host the Boston listening party for Animal Collective's upcoming 9th studio release, Merriweather Post Pavillion, on January 6th, 2009. Anticipation has been ridiculously high since the album was announced way back in October, and we at WZBC are stoked to be working with the band to celebrate the release. Keep your eyes and ears open for free giveaways, prizes, and more secret goodies as we get closer to the date.

We'll be announcing more information in the very near future on a location and event details on air, so keep listening to WZBC 90.3fm or stream us online at
