  • Grizzly Bear has a sense of humor. Witness it soon or wait a while.
Yesterday, we posted the facial-expression-inducing lineup for this year's Bridge School Benefit concert, where Neil Young and Stephen Stills will likely draw thousands of former Bay Area hippies with a Buffalo Springfield reunion. Today, another interesting piece of Bridge School news: the October 23 and 24 concert will apparently be the last live performance of Brooklyn orchestral pop outfit Grizzly Bear for "this year (and probably quite some time until a new album is released)," according to a post today on the band's Tumblr.

Grizzly Bear is returning to the studio to record a follow-up to last year's lauded Veckatimest, and has no live performance plans until that happens, apparently. This year the band performed on three continents, although not with the relentless fervor of fellow New Yorkers like the Hold Steady or even Vampire Weekend.

Grizzly Bear also plans to close up shop for the winter on Tumblr, warning fans that updates will be few and thanking them following the blog. Former/current hippies and Grizzly Bear fans, take note -- Bridge School tickets go on sale at LiveNation this Sunday at 10 a.m.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
