Tour Updates: Grizzly Bear, Two Gallants

Grizzly Bear to hit North America's corners. Two Gallants slate lengthy fall outing.

Brooklyn-based quartet Grizzly Bear will deliver their brand of austere indie rock to fans in the northwestern and northeastern regions of North America this fall. Kicking off with a gig at New York City’s Beacon Theatre Aug. 26, the brief 10-day jaunt will then lead the band — comprised of Ed Droste, Chris Bear, Chris Taylor, and Dan Rossen — across the East River to Brooklyn’s McCarren Park Pool before hurdling the nation for shows in Seattle and Portland. Following a return traversal, Grizzly Bear will stroll through Buffalo, cross the border for a trio of gigs in Ontario, and cap with an appearance in Burlington, VT.

City slickers from Seattle to New York to Los Angeles and in between can expect a visit from Two Gallants’ countrified tunes this fall as the Bay Area duo will hit the road in support their third LP, a self-titled affair, out Sept. 25 via Saddle Creek. Performing alongside Against Me! throughout August, the two bands will hit cities across the southern areas of the U.S., including Tulsa, New Orleans, and Gainesville, FL. Next, following a one month break, Two Gallants will return to the stage, logging gigs along the West Coast and throughout the Midwest en route to the East Coast. The duo will then hit metropolises such as New York City, Boston, and Philadelphia, head south, and then finally wrap with a handful of shows in Texas and California.
