Amidst all the chatter about same-sex marriages and mute Frenchmen in helmets, we should note that Baltimore native Panda Bear (of Animal Collective fame) won a Grammy last night! 

So did bluegrass legend Del McCoury

Panda Bear contributed vocals to Daft Punk’s “Album of the Year” Random Access Memories

McCoury’s Streets of Baltimore won for “Best Bluegrass Album.” 

Another local, Maysa, was nominated for “Best Traditional R&B Performance,” but that award went to Gary Clark, Jr.
