Icelandic indie folk group Of Monsters and Men were guests of The Grammy Museum this past Monday night in advance of the band's date at The Greek Theater on August 12th. The special performance, which also included a brief conversation with vocalists and songwriters Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir and Ragnar "Raggi" Þórhallsson, was part of The Grammy Museum's The Drop series of intimate and revealing spotlights on some of today's hottest artists.
Hilmarsdóttir and Þórhallsson were charming and effusive during their talk with Scott Goldman Vice President of the Grammy Foundation, taking questions from fans in the audience as well before inviting the rest of the band on stage.
