In Which I Profess My Love For Grizzly Bear

To know me is to know my love of Brooklyn-based indie rock bands.  At the top of this list is the band Grizzly Bear.  I love them.  And they're coming to Ryman Auditorium in September.  I wasn't sure if they had put out an album since Veckatimest (they haven't) & in looking, I fell down a YouTube wormhole of Grizzly Bear videos & live performances.  Here are my favorites:

Grizzly Bear from Black Cab Sessions on Vimeo.

Grizzly Bear has a new album coming out on September 18th.  Here is "Sleeping Ute" from that album.

Tickets still available for the September 18th show at the Ryman.  $35.  Buy here.

In my Grizzly Bear research, I found two interesting facts about lead singer, Ed Droste.  One, his second cousin co-founded Hooters (?!).  Two, he married his long-time boyfriend in 2011 & they live in Williamsburg (of course they do).  I found a neat article about them with pictures of their apartment (& dog) here.  Enjoy!
