Lower Dens @ Central Park Summerstage in June (more by Amanda Hatfield)
6

Grizzly Bear are set to begin a fall North American tour in September in support of their forthcoming LP, Shields, due out on September 18 via Warp. You've already heard the album tracks "Sleeping Ute" and "Yet Again" from the follow-up to the group's excellent 2009 LP, Veckatimest. Their tour starts on September 18 in Knoxville, TN and features Unknown Mortal Orchestra as main support on its first leg. The final show of that first leg is a performance at the Highdive Outdoor Annex in Champaign-Urbana, IL on September 29 as part of the 2012 Pygmalion Music Festival, which Unknown Mortal Orchestra have just been added to. They haven't yet appeared on the schedule, but it looks like they'll also be playing the Outdoor Annex with Grizzly Bear, Dinosaur Jr., Frankie Rose, Cloud Nothings, and many more (tickets).

As mentioned, Grizzly Bear visit Chicago on September 30 to headline the Riv. Lower Dens have been added as the opener for that show, and will also support the band on all other North American dates in October. Tickets are still available.
