On July 3, 2011, experimental electronic band Panda Bear played a sold out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in New York.  Tickets were so hot in fact that they could only be picked up right before entry into the venue.  I actually think this is a great way to handle events like this as it allows a greater chance of fans getting in instead of ticket scalpers.  The show began at 9 pm with surf/pop band Ducktails playing a 40 minute opening set.  Their songs were all short, rockin’ and to the point.  Panda Bear hit the stage just after 10 pm to a fog machine and trippy visuals on the screens behind them that didn’t ever let up.  The visuals mixed with lead singer Noah Lennox’ hauntingly beautiful voice were great.  Panda Bear played tracks from their album “Tomboy” and the highlight for me was the 3rd song in, “Slow Motion.”  Like most of the show, the songs had fat beats and the audience enjoyed following Panda Bear down the musical rabbit hole.
