Grizzly Bear, ACME and Here We Go Magic rock Town Hall

GB with ACME

Grizzly Bear with the ACME string quartet at Town Hall in New York City on Friday, May 29.

If there were any doubters in the crowd at Town Hall for the second and last night of Grizzly Bear’s stand at the Times Square venue, they were won over by night’s end.

The band had nearly perfect sound, and made even the looser, older songs, sound like sonic kin to the newer, fussier songs.

Poor, boomy sound that plagued the opening act, Here We Go Magic was absent from the headliner’s set. And a string quartet from ACME, an NYC-based new music ensemble, beautifully rounded out the Grizzly Bear sound.

Here We Go Magic.

Here We Go Magic.
