Five years later, Minus The Bear prove their indie-rock is just as powerful as ever at New York City show

It’s been five years since Minus The Bear released their last full-length, 2012’s Infinity Overhead, but when they played Webster Hall this week it was like they had never left the stage. Despite discussing being at a loss at how to artistically move forward prior to making the album, their live show has the same powerful, sometimes groovy, feeling as it did a decade ago.

Minus the Bear formed in Seattle in 2001, comprising of current and former members of Botch, Kill Sadie and Sharks Keep Moving and the show at Webster Hall was heaven for indie-fans, as they were joined by one of the hottest buzzed about relative newcomers in Beach Slang. Led by Alex James, the openers are chaotic and energetic on-stage, with James bending up and down over his guitar.

For Minus The Bear’s set, their first of two in New York City, they leaned heavily on tracks from their new album Voids, which is out now on Suicide Squeeze Records. The set opened with “Last Kiss,” which also opens the album. “Give And Take,” “Call The Cops” and a number of new songs also made appearances during the evening of indie-rock.

The band is currently midway through a 29-city tour that continues through April. Dates are below.
