Grizzly Bear @ MHOW in May (more by Tim Griffin)
Grizzly Bear

Grizzly Bear will head out on a month-long North American tour in September and October. Before and after, the group will play a series of overseas/European shows (including one with the London Symphony Orchestra). This summer will also find Grizzly Bear at Pitchfork Music Fest on July 19th, and the final Williamsburg Waterfront Pool Party with Beach House on August 30th.

The Late Show with David Letterman will host Grizzly Bear on Thursday, July 16th (two nights after Grizzly Bear's friend Feist plays the show with Wilco). If you remember, the band was scheduled to play the show in May, but got bumped.

Trent Reznor, who's playing a series of final NIN shows at the end of August, commented on his Grizzly Bear love in June.

Newsweek: What music do you listen to that might shock your fans?

Trent Reznor: ...The band Grizzly Bear, I think they're excellent. There's a beauty and a musicality there that I wish would have been in vogue in the late '80s, when I was forming bands. The aesthetic I was tuned into was a more dumbed-down kind of thing. Sometimes listening to stuff like they're doing makes me feel irrelevant. That's a nice, healthy kick in the ass. And it's interesting to see there's room for that in what's considered hip these days.

Their live shows were taken to another level this summer. If you get a chance, definitely check them out.

Do we really have to go to the pool party to see them in NY this fall?
How was the sound/crowd at this last one?

their show at the wiltern was one of the best this year in LA, but the palladium kinda sucks. hopefully they can make that beast sound good.

3:14 and 3:27 might be in disagreement

i think 3:27 is just another failed musician in brooklyn trying desperately to get a cashier job at a new whole foods. sad story that happens all too much.
