Animation will be appearing at Shank Hall on April 12th for a full length show! Look for another show or two to appear before then!
For our next show at Tailgaters on Saturday August 24th we would like to welcome, for one night only, the long time drummer of Animation, Dan Van Schindel! While not the 1st drummer for the band, Dan did play from 1989-2002. Dan is going to sit in for Julian (don’t worry, he’s still with us! :)) who is unable to play this particular show. Come on out for this special event as we welcome Dan on the kit!
On August 10th Animation will be at the Arcada Theater in St. Charles,IL for a very special performance. It will be a salute to Rush’s induction to the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. We hope you can all be there! The Pink Floyd Tribute band, Echoes of Pompeii will be opening. Show starts at 8pm.
July 4th is the big show! We are on from 2-4 and then 5-7 on the BMO Harris stage at Milwaukee’s Summerfest. Hope to see everyone out there, it is supposed to be a great day weather wise! Stick around afterwards to either see the Bare Naked Ladies on our stage later that evening or a certain Canadian power trio at the Marcus Ampitheater at 7:30!
We also have a very special show at the Arcada Theater in St Charles on August 10th. It will be a show like you haven’t seen us do before. We will be honoring their introduction into the RoR Hall of Fame in a special way. Echoes of Pompeii opens for us at 8pm.
On Saturday, June 29th we will be returning (after a few years) to play at the annual Neighborhood Boys and Girls Club Family Fest at 3900 N Rockwell in Chicago! It has always been a good time there! We will be playing at 5:00, right before War Pigs (Black Sabbath tribute band). It will be nearly a two hour show so we hope to see you there! Check on our show page for more details.
