Phoenix and Grizzly Bear at the Hollywood Bowl, 9/18/2010

After a brief respite, it was time to get back in the concert groove with an interesting show at the Bowl, one of the best venues in Southern California.  Though I've never listened to their most recent album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, all the way through, this was the third time I'd seen them this year, so they must be doing something right.  Grizzly Bear, on the other hand, is a band capable of great beauty and ponderous effort, sometimes within the same song, but I'd been told over and over that I needed to see them live to really appreciate what they do.
