Here's a hell of a show to top off yesterday's huge pile of concert announcements: Indie superstars The xx and Grizzly Bear, both of whom dropped alt-hit LPs last year (Coexist and Shields, respectively), will play LC Pavilion on Tuesday, June 11. This show is scheduled for the indoor LC for now, but here's hoping it will sell out so fast that they bump it to the LC's superior outdoor amphitheatre. Tickets cost $35 plus fees, and they go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
P.S. Am I the only one who's surprised Grizzly Bear (on album No. 4) is opening for The xx (on album No. 2)? I tend to think they're at least on equal footing, but then again Jamie xx produces for Drake and Alicia Keys while Grizzly Bear struggles to make upper-middle-class ends meet, so maybe this all makes sense.
