Radiohead tours with Grizzly Bear

This weekend, among other activities (seeing O’death blow away an audience of hundreds at Bowery Ballroom, getting pissed at lame Webster Hall bartenders for making me wait an hour for a beer at the Jens Lekman show–although I did also finally hear “Pocketful of Money” live!–and getting screwed by the F train), I spent a lazy Sunday remembering why I love Radiohead and trying out Head On (it doesn’t work, but it is kind of a fun tingly experience–very Kid A). Then today one of my favorite, favorite, favorite bands, Grizzly Bear posted this on Myspace:

“We are VERY pleased to announce that for 6 shows and 2 festivals we will be touring with Radiohead this August.

Hope to see you all!

August 1 – Lollapalooza – Chicago, IL

August 4 – Blossom Music Center – Cleveland, OH
August 6 – Parc Jean Drapeau – Montreal, QC
August 8 – All Points West Music & Arts Festival/Liberty State Park – Jersey City, NJ

Better than the Beta Band opening in the early 00’s? Better than Grizzly Bear opening for Feist? Uh yeah, fuck yeah, although those were both two very good scenarios. I love you Grizzly Bear, especially since you not only make beautiful post-shoegaze and have an openly gay member who does interviews with Out magazine and Pitckfork, but you also seem to like all the same music as me.

(Please note, I have also added a new blog to the –that of my father, aka Condoguy. Today he is blogging about Sweeney Todd and how it ret;aes to Condos. I’m SO PROUD!)
