Lolla Preview: Minus the Bear

Minus the Bear is a no frills indie rock band that merges electronic bleeps and sonic taps with driving guitars and pounding drums to form a beautiful soundscape; it is a collusion of aggressive rock and atmospheric electronics.

I saw them play at Langerado in 2008. The cloudy Sunday afternoon served as a fitting backdrop for this moody Seattle band. Understated and professional, their stage presence was subdued and they let their music do the talking. They were cohesive and tight — a solid performance from one of the finer Northwest indie outfits.

Minus the Bear perform on the adidas MEGA stage on Sunday at 3 PM.
