Minus the Bear is celebrating their 10 year anniversary in Seattle on 11/11/11, and we couldn’t be more excited. They’re going to be playing Highly Refined Pirates in its entirety. Are you jumping up and down yet? Yes! Those songs that are usually reserved for the double encore are guaranteed to played, and we don’t even have to cross our fingers or scream inconsequential requests.
What songs are you looking forward to? No doubt those of us who made significant memories to “Absinthe Party at the Fly Honey Warehouse” are already getting antsy to hear those smooth guitar licks from Dave Knudson.
What about, “Get Me Naked 2 – Electric Boogaloo”? Does that song title conjure memories of listening to that song on your Discman when you were ready to give up, knowing that Jake Snider was talking to you when he sang, “Don’t look at the clock/ your brain will never stop/ you said/ my life is like a bad movie/ I said/ it’s true of all of us/ you said, you said/ I’ve gotta wake up so f-king early/ I said/ maybe the directors turned on us”?
What about “Women We Haven’t Met Yet”? Does this song remind you of finding good music but not quite realizing what exactly that meant? The unknowable greatness.
Whatever your memories are of Highly Refined Pirates, bring them to the Showbox on 11/11/11. It’s going to be a celebration to be remembered for the next ten years.
Presale starts Friday 09/09 at 10am here (use code “showbox”).
