Last night's show at the Kitty Cat Klub was a damn good time. And even though the Goo Goo Dolls were playing a block away at the Varsity Theater, it was nice to see some familiar faces come out and support the little nobodies of indie rock. We couldn't have expected more from a Wednesday night—especially the author, who probably would've been couching it, pantsless, watching Lost and getting all up in some kale. But I digress.
We played a short set that was well received. At each show we get some first-time BEAR witnesses giving us observations, feedback and such. Last night it ranged from "I can tell you're a big Bazan fan—I hear a lot of Bazan and Tweedy in your songs" to "Great set. I only heard one song and it was really depressing. But anyways, yea." So we walked away feeling as though we succeeded in our goals for the night.
We made some new friends with End Quotes. What a great fucking band they have there. Nicest guys, too. Also, Brilliant Beast was indeed a brilliant beast—Jordan, Hannah, Matt, and Eric are all incredible musicians. Go to their CD release at Cause on November 8th. Tell 'em BEAR sent you.
Next up is our own show at Cause. This coming Tuesday (September 17th) with Two Beat Band and Hotel San Sebastian. What a great lineup. We just might have a brand-spanking new song to play for you, if we can get it right at band practice this week. See you then!
