The band is on tour for its fourth album, Shields.
Of the band’s 2009 appearance at the Vogue Theatre, Kate Reid wrote:
“Misty blue lights beamed into the crowd at the end of ‘I Live With You’, but the set instead concluded with an inspiring rendition of ‘On A Neck, On A Spit’. When the band came out for their encore, someone in the audience yelled out, ‘We want you inside us!’ and the Bear answered with the Crystals’ ‘He Hit Me (And It Felt Like A Kiss)’.
“A song about domestic abuse may seem an odd choice to end the night with, but ‘He Hit Me’ harkens back to the lyrics of ‘Knife’ and Grizzly Bear’s own plea for pain: ‘I want you to know, when I look in your eyes, with every blow comes another lie.’ Heavy stuff, yes, but sin is how most religions get their start and Grizzly Bear is well on its way to amassing a zealous flock of believers.”
