Ill be roaming the curry soaked streets of London when this Brooklyn band takes the stage. And while the UK is a damn good consolation prize, a non-refundable plane ticket is pretty much the only thing that would keep me from missing a Seattle Grizzly Bear show. On their last stopat the Moore Theatre this spring as openers for Feistmuch of 2006s Yellow House was showcased, with its crazy, complex arrangements and soaring, cathedral-worthy harmonies. This time around the boys have something piping hot up their sleeves, a new extra-long, ten-song EP, Friend, featuring a whole collection of goodies including our, er, South Carolinas Band of Horses covering GBs Plans, live recordings, outtakes and new originals. Deerhunterof whom Grizzlys frontman Ed Droste is a self-proclaimed #1 fan for life! according to his blogcomes along for the ride (the only date of the tour!).
