There’s a lot going on right now for Animal Collective, the psych-pop band with roots in Baltimore County, as the group prepares the release of “Tangerine Reef,” an audiovisual album set to “slow pans across surreal aquascapes of naturally fluorescent coral.” Per Rolling Stone, it was recorded here in Baltimore, at a studio where Josh Dibb, aka Deakin, works.
Even with all the activity surrounding an album roll-out, Dibb is hitting the road for a short stint of solo shows that includes a set tonight at the Parkway Theatre. Though Dave “Avey Tare” Portner and Noah “Panda Bear” Lennox have been more prodigious when writing outside of Animal Collective, Dibb’s first solo album, 2016’s “Sleep Cycle,” was a standout for its oscillating, dense soundscapes and Dibb’s lyrics about overcoming his own self-doubt. The decaying opulence of the grand Parkway Theatre will make a nice setting to let the dense, psychedelic tones of Dibb’s music wash over you. Highlife and Steve Strohmeier will also perform, and Nicole Mazarakis and Greg St. Pierre will provide visuals throughout the show.
8 p.m., The Parkway Theatre, 5 W. North Ave., (443) 438-6144, mdfilmfest.com, $10.
