More Grizzly Bear Amazingness...


I finally uploaded my shots from the show at the Crystal Ballroom, and I really just want to go back. The combination of how great they sounded and the lighting and the venue was really just perfection. It was a special show.

With this I will give you my favorite Grizzly Bear songs (as of now). They have really become my go-to band lately. I just can't seem to get enough.

In no particular order:

On a Neck, On a Spit --- Yellow House
Two Weeks --- Veckatimest
Little Brother --- both versions
While You Wait for the Others --- Veckatimest
Fix It --- Horn of Plenty
Shift (Alternate Version) --- Friend EP
Knife --- Yellow House
Southern Point --- Veckatimest
Colorado --- Yellow House

Ok, now go listen. :)
