UNCONFIRMED RUMOR: Grizzly Bear, Phoenix, and the Strokes ‘collab’
Just saw this picture of Edward Droste (Grizzly Bear), Thomas Mars (Phoenix) and Nick Valensi (The Strokes) hitting up a mad relevant Lollapalooza afterparty. Probably picking up premium ass, dragging them back to their hotel rooms, and 'showing them whose their indie daddy.' Just getting 'effing smashed', living the sick life of a top tier indie celeb, knowing ur albums are 'guaranteed' to get a Pitchfork 8._ AND that your band will 'sell mad units.'
Whenever I see a pic of multiple top tier indie celebs, I usually assume that they are sharing positive, collaborative vibes that will eventually manifest themselves in MP3 format. Not sure if Converse will 'throw tons of money at them' to make an MP3 together, but u can never really rule it out. Maybe Mountain Dew will try to re-brand and hire some 'real musicians' to make them a GreenWave mp3. Really just 'assuming' that they will probably go into the studio next week and hash something out 4 the indiesphere.
If I had to guess, the name of this band will be "Stroking Grizzly Bears in Phoenix, Yall."
Should these bros 'collab' to save 2k10, or should all bands stay solo because all collabs ruin brands?
Should they 'join forces' and write anthem-wave Arcade Fire rock, just to 'outsell' the Arcade Fire?
Should Vampy Weeks and Arcade Fire 'collab' just to go head 2 head with this new super group?
Do yall feel like the indie wars are 'heating up'?
From what I have seen on twitter, these bands were the 'winners' of Lollapalooza. Many 'auth alts' opted to see The Strokes over Lady Gaga, Phoenix over Green Day, and in the biggest indie head2head battle, many alts were spotted 'leaving the XX stage early' to 'get a Grizzly Bear spot.' Not sure if people vibe hard to eyeball fucking any more, or if The XX is sorta creeping out opportunities 4 a tween fan base.
Which of these bands will have the biggest 2k11?
Will these bros no longer be bros in 2k11, when their albums are 'going head 2 head'?
If u were an alternative celebrity, what 'perk' would u abuse the most?
Should all bands collab just to synergize brands and capitalize on market forces.
