The sound was a bit wonky tonight, unfortunately. Made it nearly impossible to hear any of the backing vocals, and they had the instruments (particularly bass) waaaaaaaay to loud in the mix. Still was highly entertaining, and sounded quite good. Just nowhere as near as I knew it should have been sounding. People were still having a blast. Ed actually took a picture from the stage, saying it's the first time he's ever done that, but he had to capture the moment.

EDIT: Looks like they already posted it on Facebook (see blurb underneath the pic):

The racial diversity at an indie show in Utah is simply astounding.

Would a Grizzly Bear show anywhere else (outside of a festival) be anymore diverse?

Utah does have one of the highest percentages of white people in the country, if I'm not mistaken. I'm sure a Grizzly Bear concert in Salt Lake only serves to highlight that statistic.

Nowhere near what you likely think it is. According to the 2012 census, White alone, not Hispanic or Latino, percent, 2012 - 79.9%.

"Mute" is one of the best tracks of the year. The album is kinda hit and miss like his first one, but god damn that track and "Dropla."

Yeah. Very inconsistent but those tracks rule. Love 1:10 on in Mute when all the wonky synths start piling on top of each other.

You know I have a philosophical problem with this. If you are going to release a deluxe edition, either do it upfront with the album release or make the extra tracks available as a separate EP.
