Seattle’s Best Concerts this Week [Nov. 12]

Indie lovers are going to have a hard choice on Friday – but other than that, it’s clear which will be the best shows in the Emerald City this week.

11/14 (Wednesday) – The Octopus Project @ Chop Suey
A playful, hook-laden indie electronica group from Austin, TX.

11/15 (Thursday) – Kris Orlowski @ Tractor Tavern
Thoughtfully crafted local indie pop with intelligent lyrics and occasionally understated, yet often impassioned vocals.

11/16 (Friday) – Ben Gibbard @ The Showbox
One of the biggest names in indie music, frontman of Death Cab for Cutie and collaborator for Postal Service brings his always amazing solo show to the hometown crowd.

11/16 (Friday) – Patrick Watson @ The Crocodile
Passionate, piano-driven indie pop with a larger-than-life stage presence from Montreal.

11/17 (Saturday) – Minus The Bear @ The Showbox
Hometown musical heroes (including former members of Botch, These Arms Are Snakes and Sharks Keep Moving) have wooed crowds since 2001 with their combination of indie, math and experimental rock.

Wait, What? Minus the Bear is Playing Where? MTB at Eastlake’s Little Water Cantina Tonight

Not since Miniature Tigers inexplicably added Eastlake’s Azteca to their tour a couple years back have we been so confused, yet excited by music news in Seattle’s water-loving neighborhood in the heart of the city.

As the Seattle Met and others are reporting, local favorites Minus the Bear will be playing Eastlake’s more upscale Mexican-inspired restaurant tonight. The band will be playing Little Water Cantina‘s patio on Eastlake Ave tonight. Apparently Eastlake Mexican restaurants are the new Neumos.

According to the restaurant, “the party starts at 6:30 and will involve all-night taco specials” and more. Expect to hear a wide-variety of selections from the band’s decade-long catalog during their roughly hour-long set. If you can’t make it tonight and/or are more excited about seeing the band in a slightly more traditional venue, you can catch the band’s ten year anniversary show at the Showbox on November 11.

9/13 Minus the Bear @ Little Water Cantina :: 2865 Eastlake Ave. E., Seattle, WA 98102 :: 6:30 :: All Ages
