Gorilla Vs Bear Announces Festival | July 23rd at Granada Theater (Dallas)


I trust his taste more than most so when Gorilla Vs Bear hinted at his first festival a few days ago I was all ears. Today we have the line up announcement and if you read GVsB regularly you can tell that he chose a lot of his favorites was very meticulous in his choices. The final product is a very solid day of music. I for one will be heading down to Dallas to take part and I highly suggest that all of you do the same.

A brief description of the line up via Gorilla Vs Bear:

The inaugural lineup couldn't be much more representative of the inspiration and history behind this blog, as it features our current favorite band (White Denim), the newest endeavor of one of my favorite rappers of all-time, and the creator of the best album of 2011 to date (Shabazz Palaces), the debut of the new project from a Dallas icon* and founder of one of the most beloved bands in the history of our hometown, and much more. The bill is rounded out by a few of our favorite -- and most posted about -- artists that are currently making music: Julianna Barwick, Grimes (who'll be coming off a stint opening for Lykke Li's current North American tour), Sleep ∞ Over, Pure X, Sunset, and Dreamed, with DJ sets coming between bands from Dallas' own Sober.

*Tim DeLaughter's (Polyphonic Spree) new project Preteen Zenith will also perform.
