Grab your rabbit's foot and scour the garden for a four-leaf clover, because it's time for another concert-ticket giveaway! This time around, the lucky winner will get a pair of passes to see trippy-dippy quartet Animal Collective at the Crystal Ballroom on Sept 20! 

It's been three years since the release of Merriweather Post Pavilion, a record that brought scads of attention and new fans to the Animal Collective camp, and early indicators would seem to predict another prodigious leap in audience share for the band's brand-new album Centipede Hz, a similarly bracing collection of percolating pop music sheathed in arresting layers of doodles, bloops, swirls, and thumps.  

This contest is now closed.

Meanwhile, feast your eyes on AC's new video for the song "Today's Supernatural," which features a dune buggy, sad clown makeup, and a big ol' monster head.
