Animal Collective Member Using Internet Exclusive to Pay For African Excursion

Animal Collectives’ Josh Gibbs who performs under the name Deakin was invited to play at a festival in Mali. Unfortunately, the festival is unable to pay for travel expenses, so to raise funds Gibbs is using the online fundraising site Kickstarter and offering exclusive packages of Mali trip related field recordings and merchandise in exchange for financial contributions. For some reason, Gibbs set the fundraising goal at a somewhat inflated $25,000. To contribute, or for more information on the project click here.
