I can't believe they are playing The Crazy Donkey.
That place usually has washed up bands and tribute bands. When they aren't having concerts, it is a guido club.

The former lead singer of Fuel will be there as "Refueled" singing all of the hits of Fuel. Ugh.

Saw Minus the Bear once. They bored me.

I remember we used to toke up to MTB a few years back in college and lend each other a helping hand like only a good bro can, if you know what I mean.

Explosions in the Sky at the Crazy Donkey last year was amazing

Explosions in the Sky played the Crazy Donkey?! for some reason I can't picture that! I did see the Dillinger Escape Plan there a few months back, that place is pretty...weird.

With his Pulitzer Prize in biography, his boxy grey suits, his kindly Richard Kind underjaw, hollowed gaze, his website on Christian morality, his straight-arrow ethics, the journalistic establishment has awarded Jon Meacham one of the seats at the big table.

This tour schedule sucks. MTB always had a great show, but this year whoever booked them totally ruined their tour. Not one single venue on this list is worthy of the energy that MTB brings. The San Diego show especially. Belly Up tavern is a 21+ venue and the majority of Minus the Bear fans are not 21+, regardless, that is super messed up for the booking manager to book this band in a 21+ show. Every Minus The Bear show should be all ages, in order to reach out to the fans who they have in all age groups.

Umm about the 21 plus. comment. in 2001 is when they first came out. all of them were atleast 18 at this point maybe 21. there music is for people the age they are give or take a few. the new song "into the mirror". that song cant truly be understood with out atleast being 21 or older. it s about a life someone could only have exp after 21. (at least in the way he/she talks about it) the tour reflects the direction they are going as a band. they are drinkers. they are playing in bars. They dont want to be a "idols or icon or..." (things teens adore) they want to be ROCK stars. (classic for the future) listened to by adults. living adult lives. who have a splash of wild. up your game and get a fake. either way good taste in music.
