These two shows are technically make up shows, since the band was forced to cancel their show at Williamsburg Waterfront in October. Photos by Michel Dussack

The reason for the cancellation was that Avey Tare was sick and it affected his voice. He's clearly since recovered and sounded great at Terminal 5. Photos by Michel Dussack

Never a band that has played by the rules, Animal Collective performed a set that rarely touched upon their massive back catalog, yet fans ate up early minute of it. Photos by Michel Dussack
