Grizzly Bear, Unknown Mortal Orchestra 

When: Mon., Sept. 17, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $23-$30.50
Sometimes it's difficult giving a bunch of New Yorkers who constantly mug it up with such a naturally pompous air, a fair shake, but at the heart of it all GRIZZLY BEAR's songs rarely disappoint. On the eve of releasing Shields (Warp Records), the follow up to the group’s critically and commercially acclaimed 2009 album Veckatimest, Ed Droste and Co. come through Atlanta to show off their latest round of densely layered pop yearning. Such songs as "Sleeping Ute," "Yet Again," and "Gun-Shy" swell with such complex beauty that, in the presence of the group's breezy and cacophonous presence, it's virtually impossible not to be swept away by the music. Success has done nothing to tame these guys. Unknown Mortal Orchestra opens the show.
