Sunday's Pool Party: Grizzly Bear & Beach House

Grizzly Bear – “Two Weeks”
It’s been a pretty amazing series, but alas the 2009 Pool Parties come to a close this Sunday with Beach House and Grizzly Bear. Uh, wow! After last week’s dance party with Girl Talk—8500 people attended—the line-up for Sunday promises to be a much more mellow scene, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be packed. Get there early if you want to get in without the hassle of waiting in a ridiculously long line.
4pm – Vega
5pm – Beach House
6:15pm – Grizzly Bear

Hipster Runoff On Last Week's Girl Talk Party


It seems like the Girl Talk is a ‘celebration of waste’, like they are just converting a local park into a ‘huge fucking dumpster.’

The entire post is hilarious and, best of all, ‘Carles’ used Clarissa’s photos to illustrate his point.

Sunday: Lightning Bolt!

There’s just too much good much going on tomorrow. This Todd P show that just came to our attention promises to be pretty amazing. Damn you Todd P. We love you, but how could you make us decide between Lightning Bolt and Grizzly Bear?

Drew Citron loves Billy Bragg and is a jazzy, soulful and folky Brooklynite by way of San Francisco. Citron says she plays to crowds of adoring drunks, emotional roustabouts, and anyone else who cares for the heart-worn. If you fit any of the above descriptions you should you come to the show! Drew is such a sweetheart she’ll give you a free copy of her EP just for showing up with your drunk and or emotional face.
