When Bear In Heaven came to San Diego earlier this year, most people in the room were unfamiliar. They were opening for Cymbals Eat Guitars and followed Freelance Whales at the sold-out show, a feat that wasn't easy. The band delivered, however, and kept the entire crowd caught up in its music instead of escaping to the bar or patio. This time around, the band is headlining, and while I'm interested to see if their moustaches have continued to grow into an artform, I'm especially excited to hear the band live again, because while its recorded material is excellent, they are a band whose live show just cannot be adequately captured on record. See them tonight at the Casbah with Lower Dens and Sun Airway.
