Edward Droste of Grizzly Bear displays his 'favorite band ever' (*Ethel)
Ed Beach House

"The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is offering a reward for information leading to the conviction of whoever illegally shot and killed what officials say was one of Montana's largest grizzly bears.

The carcass of the big grizzly, called Maximus because he stood 7 1/2 feet tall and weighed about 800 pounds, was found Aug. 12 on a ranch in northern Montana. The bear had been dead about a month.

Special Agent Brian Lakes said Friday that he didn't know what the exact size of the reward would be but it would be "substantial."

"We are following up on some leads at this time," Lakes told the Great Falls Tribune." [AP]

Grizzly Bear play with Ed's 'favorite band ever' (not his wording), Beach House, this Sunday (8/30) at the Williamsburg Waterfront. The show marks the end of the 2009 season of free Pool Parties in Brooklyn ('VIP' tickets are also available).

My sister's friend used to date one of the guy's in Grizzly Bear. Friend says he gave pretty terrific facetime so kudos to him for having mad skills on and off the stage. Really looking forward to the pool party show.

Rain'll be spotty by Sunday, by evening it should be nice. Don't fret. Shame about that big grizzly out in Montana. Fuckin' hicks.

would it be possible to catch Lightning Bolt and Grizzly Bear?

weather reports says 30% chance of scattered t-storms.... if old Danny hits all indications that it will clear out by sunday.... lets hope..

if the fish and wildlife folks want more large bears in Montana, they should head to downtown the Ramrod or the Eagle.

woooo....grizzly bear, they're great - should be a high octane show for the non-confrontational hippies

hurricane danny...a song the fall covered?

shame that whoever shot that grizzly bear and didn't have it mounted...pointless.

What time does Jelly usually let us know if the concert has been moved indoors?

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2009 2:44 PM

"he gave pretty terrific facetime"

what does that even mean ?

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2009 2:48 PM

2:48 if you don't know, think about it a little harder or maybe even say it aloud.

Hopefully tonight when you're giving your own facetime it will come to you. No pun intended.

1:47 and 1:57

Posted by Dan K. | August 30, 2009 3:32 PM

It'd be awesome if Grizzly Bear got hit by a Lightning Bolt.

Jay Z and Beyonce in the house tonight! They clearly love Grizzly Bear!

Posted by blackhat | August 30, 2009 9:00 PM

1st Waterfront show. Grizzly Bear was amazing, and Jay Z and Beyonce were in the house, as was Chuck Schumer. But what's up with the entrance policy? HUGE lines to get in, masses of people outside, but then once you get in, plenty of open space, room for WAY more people? I mean, my friend and I had a huge area to ourselves to watch band, so I guess i'm not complaining, but whoever organizes these things did a terrible job, they could have let a LOT more people in and still not had any kind of overcrowding!!! But Grizzly Bear rocked!

Posted by brian Roach | August 30, 2009 9:54 PM

Jay singing along to The Knife was worth the long lines and heat.

Jay Z Beyonce and Chuck Schumer at Jelly NYC... with plenty of reported room on the inside and lines a mile long outside?!?

This smells of back door deals to show someone that the waterfront can draw masses, and remain exclusive. Someone is definitely looking to make even more coin by pushing some financiers to invest / profit / destroy the waterfront. Those crooked bastards will stop at nothing.

Posted by nachtengel | August 30, 2009 11:20 PM

@11:20pm. do you seriously believe that? jelly makes money to pay bands from beer sales. this clearly was a park regulation / occupancy issue as more people at the show = more people buying beer. thus it doesn't benefit jelly to not let people into the show.

It always saddens me to hear that the pool partying season comes to an end. It's the most exciting time of the year with parties every day and every night. Although there wont be pool parties for a while, I hope the party spirit will remain and people will continue to have fun. It's not the same without the sun and the water but we can compensate by warming up the atmosphere our selves.
