Grizzly Bear @ City Recital Hall (Second Night)

Well, I backed up again last night for a second dose of the magnificent Grizzly Bear and it was definitely worth it. This review will be brief as it was basically the same set list, but I wanted to write about the night mainly for the record. Tuesday night they basically replaced "Lullabye" with "Little Brother" and didn't give us "Service Bell". Later in the set they played "Shift" from "Horn Of Plenty" which was lovely in so many ways. The encore was a bit of a surprise, going with "He Hit Me". Ed Droste, as usual, provided great vocals once again.

If you are able to scrounge a ticket for their remaining two shows in Sydney, then don't hesitate at the opportunity to see a band at the peak of their powers. Grizzly Bear just nail everything live. Soaring vocals, all encompassing musicianship and tremendously effective lighting make for one unforgettable experience. This band has it all and I seriously doubt I will see a better show at all in 2010.
