Among the many joys that exist because of music festivals are the joint tours that evolve from bands sharing similar festival schedules. As far as these typically short, co-headlining legs go, the pairing of Grizzly Bear and The xx is about as good as it gets.
The two indie heavyweights will lock tour busses for seven announced shows in the Northeast, including performances at Boston’s Bank of America Pavilion and Baltimore’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. In addition, both will be appearing in NYC for the Governors Ball Festival.
Not on the itinerary is Bonnaroo, but a little bit of logic and experience indicates that both bands will be pretty high on that poster when it appears.
