Grizzly Bear + Spoon

Wednesday, June 20 , 6 pm – 11 pm, 2018

Grizzly Bear performs at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

One of the mainstays of the indie rock scene of the 2000s and 2010s, Grizzly Bear recently came back from a five-year hiatus in 2017 with Painted Ruins, which the New York Times described as the band pushing “its music further both inward and outward” with “secrets and misgivings that are gorgeously wrapped.” Previous to that, the band had put out four studio albums including Horn of Plenty (2004), Yellow House (2006), Veckatimest (2009), and Shields (2012). All of which earned them critical acclaim, fans around the world, and even an opening spot on Radiohead's 2008 tour. Having formed in Brooklyn, we are happy to welcome Edward Droste, Christopher Bear, Chris Taylor, and Daniel Rossen back to the borough.

Spoon, the indie rock band from Austin, Texas, also performs at the Bandshell in support of its ninth album, Hot Thoughts. According to Pitchfork, “Spoon stay in their well-earned lane but tweak the formula just enough on their ninth album, keeping their reliably great songwriting and adding new, electronic textures.” Formed in 1993, the band has been releasing music since then, including their first full-length debut Telephono in 1996, and all the way through to 2014’s They Want My Soul. Overall, the work of Britt Daniel, drummer Jim Eno, bassist Rob Pope and no-longer-a-secret weapon Alex Fischel have scaled some lofty heights, and they return to the Bandshell this summer, after a benefit concert in 2008.
