"The National is headlining the concert at Hammerstein Ballroom on October 10th, Grizzly Bear is opening and the evening is hosted by Stella: Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter and David Wain. Tickets are $35 and there's no scalping, like all New York events, it's will-call only." [The Life Vicarious]
The National's last NYC show was at Central Park Summerstage.
Grizzly Bear's last NYC show was at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The night before that they played All Points West in Jersey City - part of their tour with Radiohead that ended August 15th in Toronto. Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood never speaks at shows. At that Toronto show he spoke on stage possibly for the first time ever. What he said was (approximately), "I would like to thank my favourite band in the world, Grizzly Bear, so thanks alot, thank you very much for touring with us". Thom followed that with, "Jonny speaks". Video footage from Toronto and more pictures from All Points West, below...
