Show Announcement - Minus the Bear - 11/20/09 - Mr Smalls - Show Preview - Free Ticket Giveaway
Minus the Bear will be performing at Mr Smalls next Friday night. Below is a preview of the show along with a few tunes. I am also happy to giveaway a free pair of tickets to the show. All you have to do is email here with your name. All entries must be received by 11/18.
Minus the Bear are originally from the Seattle area, although they are a far cry from the mid 90's 'grunge' scene. They play a unique style of indie pop-rock, using experimental and technology to creat their signature sound. Planet of Ice was their last official lp showing the band not so much transforming their sound as transcending it. They are currently touring in support of their new ep Acoustics which takes a step back from the last lp to a more stripped down endeavor. This isn't some 'one off' acoustic set; it takes on more of a compositional approach weaving their electronic tracks to more of an acoustic symphony. The album makes up fan favorites and is currently available nationally at digital (itunes and emusic) and physical copies exclusively on their tours (and at this stop at Mr Smalls) which includes a previously unreleased track called "Guns & Ammo".
"Guns & Ammo"
Be sure to checkout their show next Friday. The show is sponsored by 92.1 WPTS and includes As Tall as Lions and Twin Tigers. Show is scheduled to begin at 8p.
