Minus the Bear, Hustle and Drone, Themes

PETE COTTELL
8 pm., Thursday August 01 | $16 advance, $20 day of show.
Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th Ave.
 
[PROGRESSIVE EMO] Prog-rock and emo make strange bedfellows, but the pairing is seamless in the hands of Seattle’s Minus the Bear. If you’re able to forgive the quintet for 2010’s sample-heavy coke-rock snoozer, Omni, the appeal of an MTB show is vast. Careening guitar solos and glitchy rhythm tracks give way to 4/4 bangers like “The Fix” and “Cold Company,” the latter highlighting the band’s excellent 2012 offering, Infinity Overhead. MTB has come a long way in honing its peculiar brand of high-tech math pop in the decade that’s flown by since debut Highly Refined Pirates. Luckily, the group’s yet to outgrow the rock club (or theater, as it were), and this one will certainly be packed to capacity.
