Grizzly Bear / Santigold @ Bowery Ballroom, 12/10/2012 (Andrako)
"So, you guys go to a lot of shows?" asked Chris Taylor of the Bowery Ballroom crowd last night (12/10) which was private "Year in Music" party thrown by SPIN, mostly for advertisers. Definitely not your normal Grizzly Bear crowd. That said, Grizzly Bear sounded great as usual, even if some of the visual flare of their recent shows was replaced by a lit-up SPIN logo.
Also playing the party was Santigold who seemed to be a little more the crowd's speed. With a set featuring multiple costume changes, umbrella-armed backup dancers and a pantomime horse, Santi put on a very fun show. She's a charmer.
Grizzly Bear's next show is this Friday (12/14) at Terminal 5 as part of a Hurricane Sandy relief benefit that also includes Sleigh Bells, The Antlers and Cults. That show is sold out. Meanwhile, Santigold plays Oakland, CA on Wednesday (12/12) and Miami on New Year's Eve.
