I really need to go to more concerts…

Last Tuesday I went to see Grizzly Bear. Who were awesome!

The concert was about three hours away, but we managed to arrive right on time (we missed the openers, Here We Go Magic, but I still bought their CD based on the three minutes of their last song we heard). I was really impressed with them live – they use a lot of layering and looping, so I wasn’t sure how it would work live. The answer is awesomely.

I was particularly impressed with the bassist, who was working very hard, doing double and triple duty playing not only the bass, but the flute, clarinet, and bass clarinet, and singing, too. When he pulled out the flute, I was like ‘Okay, I can do that, too’ but he lost me after that. That and all the electronics he was juggling, too – it looked very complicated!
