Everything is that night. Death Cab/Andrew Bird/Okkervil River and now this. When it rains it pours!

yeah and some of those bands are actually good :)
but some are not :(
either way, those other bands have played NYC about dozen times & Department of Eagles have never played (to the best of my knowledge) so I know where I'll be..

Other shows with contracts.

Department of Eagles = Grizzly Bear without the Gay Guy (ED).

"Department of Eagles = Grizzly Bear without the Gay Guy (ED)."

What's your point?

Posted by Andrew | September 11, 2008 1:27 PM

This album is really pretty and I'm sure this show is going to be epic, but I really wish these guys would stop fooling around and finish the new Grizzly Bear album already.

There is no point.

I remember when GB first appeared... it was widely known that they were all gay... one of the first openly gay bands out there... I mean where all the members are.

bell house is going to blow minds.

department of eagles will sound great in there bv. looking forward to it.

Posted by b | September 11, 2008 2:18 PM

man, my pretty decent joke mocking you 'tards (who think that a person's sexuality is important to consider when weighing the value of their art) got vetoed

Posted by Anonymous | September 11, 2008 2:26 PM

Jason, you have no idea what you're talking about. How was it "widely known"? Perhaps within your circle of misinformed friends. Ed is gay. The rest of the guys are not. Besides, when GB "first appeared" only Ed and Chris Bear were in it!

A shame these DoE threads inevitably turn into "who is gay in Grizzly Bear" but it seems worth clearing up. If any of those cute straight boys are still single, it probably doesn't serve them very well for people to think they are gay.

Woah. BV is a fascist. Who knew. A whole section of the post has been deleted. Not Cool BV. What happened to Free Speech?

What happened to not being a bigot?

Posted by brooklynvegan | September 11, 2008 2:50 PM

Saying someone is is "gay" is not necessarily "bad" BV. Get with the program.

Posted by Anonymous | September 11, 2008 2:52 PM

What's that "program" again?

Anything to do with music?

Posted by drewo | September 11, 2008 2:55 PM

Gays in music is a completely relevant topic. Gay is not bad and to censor threads on the topic implies that you think gay is bad and somehow shameful. and this is too bad.

Posted by Anonymous | September 11, 2008 2:58 PM

Give me a break. As you'll see from the comments that were not deleted, "the topic" was not censored.

Posted by brooklynvegan | September 11, 2008 3:07 PM

Also, if you're going to comment over and over again in the same thread, at least use a name. Thanks.

Posted by brooklynvegan | September 11, 2008 3:13 PM

Why should people be forced to use their name, BV when you don't use yours.

Posted by What's Your Name, BV? | September 11, 2008 3:23 PM

I don't think he means a REAL name. Just something so we can actually address each other, rather than deal with this faceless chorus, which is probably actually just one person.

Of course, you could always just steal someone else's name and confuse things even further.

Requiring a login to comment on this site would probably do a lot of good.

wow, what a moron

The way I have come to understand it through reading interviews and listening to the tunes,especially live, Grizzly Bear and Department of Eagles are really moving in different directions if you think of the songs in terms 'scope.' I that's not prescriptive, merely something observed. GB tracks like "Fine For Now" really blow the door of the hinges of the Yellow House (a record I care very much for). To make an awful analogy, Department of Eagles is Kafka to Grizzly Bear's Whitman. Also, you'll notice the Fred N. wrote the lyrics to Little Brother and has probably had a bigger influence on GB than meets the eye.

Sorry for not proof reading ^^^ "in terms OF 'scope'. That's not..."

"This album is really pretty and I'm sure this show is going to be epic, but I really wish these guys would stop fooling around and finish the new Grizzly Bear album already."

You're right about the "really pretty" thing - this album is f'ing amazing - but I have to disagree with you on the "fooling around" part. DOE was around long before GB and it's about frigging time they come out with a second album and play a live show. I couldn't be more excited!!

"It will be the first time their band ever plays together live.", wow, more reason not to go. Amazing what a couple of mildly well known musicans can get away with. Oh, publicists and trust funds definitely help too. Losers take note...

This guy sounds like a bitter old guy that thinks he knows everything.

What are they getting away with? Playing a $10 show?

Also I think a member of Grizzly Bear's band signed to 4AD with a great new album coming out is more than "mildly well known".

one of the best albums of the year
