Go See Animal Tropical Friday Night.

If you haven’t seen ANIMAL TROPICAL live yet, then rejoice and come out because they will be taking the stage this Friday at The Vagabond!

We unabashedly love this South Florida foursome who, while hard to describe, are making some of the best and most unique music in the current creative atmosphere.  They also dress sharp, make cool videos and put on a great show (which you can see  for yourself this week).  You can read more about them from some press quotes we posted after the jump.

We’ve posted this before but their awesome EP “Doom Years” is still available for free from the link below.  Get it and see you Friday!
