Show Pick of the Day: Minus the Bear at the 40 Watt Club


Musician Brian Eno described ambience as music that is "actively listened to with attention or as easily ignored, depending on the choice of the listener", and exists on the "cusp between melody and texture."

If you want to know exactly what Mr. Eno is talking about, then check out Minus the Bear tonight at the 40 Watt Club.  Hailing from Seattle, Washington, these guys are a perfect example of ambience in the 21st Century and create an atmosphere of intriguing electronic blends.

Openers for the night include Brooklyn’s The Antlers and Athens own Twin Tigers. 

Doors open at 9 and tickets are selling fast, so if you haven’t already purchased one, then grab one while you can.  The 40 Watt is only selling a limited number of tickets at the door. 

And if you haven’t heard Minus the Bear, check out their Myspace and give “Pachuca Sunrise” a listen.
