Deacon from Animal Collective needs your help
In 2007, Josh "Deacon" Dibb (pictured), a founding member of the indie group Animal Collective, took an indefinite break from touring and writing music.
He worked on Animal Collective's film, "ODDSAC," which was recently finished. He moved back to Owings Mills, where he lives with his mother, Jessica. He helped friends build an earthen house in Annapolis.
About a month ago, Dibb was invited to perform at the Festival in the Desert in Mali, Africa. But in order for Dibb to play, he needed music. So finally, he started seriously working on new material.
Now, he's asking for tax deductible donations to help abolish slavery in Africa. You can make a donation by going here. If you contribute $50 or more, you will get a copy of Dibb's new CD after he returns. But the pledge window closes tomorrow, so if you're going to do it, do it now.
