As part of its genre-defying 2007 music season and an ongoing commitment to bringing art, culture, and independent music to West Texas, BALLROOM MARFA proudly welcomes Grizzly Bear and the Papercuts for their February 24th performances at Liberty Hall.

Grizzly Bear make gorgeous pop without invoking any of pop’s familiar cliches. A group that coalesced after founder Edward Droste’s homemade recordings became an underground sensation, these four young Brooklynites layer their sophisticated lyrical tableaux with harmonies, autoharps, organs, acoustic guitars, bells, and scraps of electronics. Grizzly Bear’s appearance in Marfa follows the acclaimed Yellow House, their 2006 suite of hypnotic pop experimentalism on Britain’s Warp records. Grizzly Bear are joined for the evening by San Francisco’s Papercuts, touring here in support of their much-anticipated sophomore release Can’t Go Back.

The Papercuts are the brainchild of Jason Quever — multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, producer, and an integral force in the Bay Area’s thriving electronic pop scene. Anchored by Quever’s knack for melody and his distinctly blissful vocals, the Papercuts’ hazy, analogue atmospheres are certain to find serendipity in the sumptuous space of Liberty Hall.

We hope you’ll join BALLROOM MARFA on Feb. 24th for an evening of music from the leading edge of American independent music.
