Grizzly Bear brings their powerful and hypnotic song arrangements to the Brooklyn waterfront for one last Pool Party. Since 2004, Grizzly Bear has released three albums ( Horn of Plenty (2004), Yellow House (2006), Veckatimest (2009) ) and an EP ( Friend (2007) ).

The band has performed backed by an orchestra at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in February 2009. On October 31st Grizzly Bear will be performing with the London Symphony Orchestra.
Alex Scally (guitar/keyboards) and Victoria Legrand (vocals/keyboards), the latter of whom is the niece of French composer Michel Legrand, create the dreamy lo-fi sounds of Beach House. The Baltimore duo formed in 2005 with Legrand’s Nico-like vocal hush and Scally’s delicate instrumentation. Within a year, Beach House charmed indie music enthusiasts across the blogosphere with their languid songcraft, while the eerie warmth of “Apple Orchard” landed on Pitchfork’s Infinite Mixtape MP3 series in August 2006. Two months later, Beach House issued their eponymous debut album for Carpark.(Source: AMG)
