Minus the Bear, Velvet Teen 

When: Fri., Oct. 21, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $20-23

Formed a decade ago, Seattle quintet Minus the Bear celebrates its 10th anniversary on this tour by performing its 2002 debut LP, Highly Refined Pirates, in its entirety. With its Starship Troopers-obsessed song titles, Pirates is a fan favorite, probably more for nostalgic reasons than for the still-embryonic qualities of the band's mathy, emo-tinged rock. Minus the Bear executed that style with far greater success on its subsequent efforts. Expect MTB to pull it off with more punch, though, now that they've matured. California's The Velvet Teen opens with like-minded math-infused rock. —Spencer Griffith
