Long before he was catching 8.5s on P4K, Grizzly Bear's Edward Droste was skulking around Cambridge, keeping an amazingly low profile given that his ancestors are pretty damn Harvarded-up. His Bear family broke out of Brooklyn, but he brought the clan back to Mass to record Yellow House at his mom's house (guess what color?) in Watertown, and he'll be back in Boston to play the Museum of Fine Arts's indie-rock series this Friday, February 2. The show is severely sold out, but we kept a couple pairs stashed away in the drawer, and they're yours for the taking. Full interview with Droste will show up later today at the main Phoenix site (check back, we'll post a link when it's live). If you want the tix, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org UPDATE: IF YOU EMAILED, OUR INBOX EXPLODED BEFORE WE READ THEM. POST IN COMMENTS TO GET TIX. Also, don't forget we've still got tix for the screening of Matthew Barney: No Restraint on January 31 at the MFA. Same deal: post in the comments field, because our email died. Meanwhile, the Grizzly Bear dudes made a funny: check the downloadable pun below.
