SLCene Suggests: Minus The Bear at The Depot

by on November 5, 2012

MINUS THE BEAR, THE DEPOT, Tuesday, Nov. 6, 7:30 p.m., $19 advance/$22 day of show

Just more than 10 years after forming in Seattle, Minus The Bear just seems to be getting better with each album they release. The band’s new one, Infinity Overhead, just arrived in September, and the band’s songs are at their most sophisticated, full of complex time signatures and experimental sounds pulled from the instruments of singer/guitarist Jake Snider, guitarist Dave Knudson, bassist Cory Murchy, synthesizer player Alex Rose and drummer Erin Tate. At times, the band veers into areas of prog and math-rock that aren’t really my thing, but the tunes remain rooted in some rock-solid songcraft all the while. Joining them are two bands worthy of headlining themselves. Cursive out of Omaha is a long-time Utah favorite and regular visitors to town, and Girl in a Coma are a rocking trio on Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records label–a stamp of high quality in my book.
