Jay-Z And Beyonce Attend The Last Pool Party Of 2009

We were wondering who that was yesterday exiting the final Pool Party in a limo. Yep, Jay-Z and Beyonce are Grizzly Bear fans. A tipster sent us the pictures to prove it.
Yesterday’s Pool Party felt like the end of an amazing summer as 10,000 elated fans watched Grizzly Bear perform and the sun set over the New York skyline. JellyNYC pulled off an impressive set of shows including performances by Dirty Projectors, Girl Talk, Dan Deacon, and The Black Lips. It remains unclear if the series will return to the Williamsburg waterfront next year, but Chuck Schumer seems to be an advocate. As we snapped a picture we heard the Senator exclaim emphatically “this is great for Brooklyn.” We couldn’t agree more.
