Minus the Bear, Cursive, Girl in a Coma 

When: Fri., Nov. 16, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $20-23
I was skeptical when Seattle mainstays Minus the Bear released "Lonely Gun," the first single from their new album Infinity Overhead. It wasn't that I thought the song was bad, it was just... okay, no, the song is bad. While the lyrics and chorus have familiar Minus the Bear flavor, the song feels like an out-of-place remix, layering the vocals over some canned electronic bits—wiry synth and dance beats. And then there is saxophone! Why is there saxophone? Thankfully, the more mellow follow-up single, "Steel and Blood," is less, um, confusing, and a better overall representation of Infinity Overhead.
