Known for their awesome arrangements and bizarre song names, Minus The Bear has been favorite to many in the indielectronica scene for years. The dueling, funky guitars and electronic drumbeats are the band’s trademark. The intense synth riffs, in songs “The Fix” and “Lotus,” are contagious and always impress crowds at live performances. MTB’s newest album, Omni, is their most successful release with danceable tracks that have a multitude of electric grooves and strong percussion parts. The band will be playing July 7 at Starland Ballroom. All ages. $19.50 adv, $22 dos.
