I know there's a lot of other things in the news right now that people would rather talk about -- moon bombing, Obama's prize, CB Bucknor, Jim + Pam, etc. -- so I'll be brief in discussing last night's Grizzly Bear show.
The Grizz are in an interesting place right now. Sure, they're nominally a hip, "indie rock" band, but their sound is pretty far removed from the Pavements, Superchunks, and Neutral Milk Hotels of the world (to say nothing of Animal Collective or Deerhunter).
Just in case you doubted us for claiming Grizzly Bear as a Cambridge band, Ed Droste has gone on record as being a fan of our sister station WFNX. Good thing they added "Two Weeks" last week. Now, if only we could get them to play our Best Music Poll Concert this year . . . speaking of which, let this serve as a reminder that Grizzlies are up for BEST NATIONAL INDIE ACT in this year's awards.
