There might have been what seemed to be a lack of diversity at the Minus the Bear show last night at Marquee Theatre, but white kids got down and dirty, dancing to the indie stylings of the band who recently extended their current tour for another month. Valley fans got to check out the group before they head to Lollapalooza and the Sasquatch! Music Festival, and judging by the mini-reviews attendees Tweeted once the show was over, the band put on a festival-worthy performance in Tempe.
Our music critic, however, did not agree.
