Minus the Bear, Cursive, and Girl In a Coma, Cursive @ Marquee Theatre|11/8/12
The term "indie rock" is a convenient catchall, but last night at the Marquee Theatre, the term's definition was stretched to the limit.
Minus the Bear, Cursive, and Girl in a Coma utilize elements of a lot of genres: post-hardcore, math rock, emo, experimental, Joan Jett-style rock 'n' roll, pop punk, and even the dreaded "e-word." But rather than come across as a scattershot bill, the band's created a unified front. It was a feast of musical stylings.
