In front of a packed house, Minus the Bear kicked off their show at Great American Music Hall last Thursday with the first two songs — “Last Kiss” and “Give & Take” — from their sixth and most recent LP Voids, which they put out last month.

Before a three-song encore that culminated with “Pachuca Sunrise” from 2005’s Menos el Oso, they ended their set with “Throwin’ Shapes” off 2007’s Planet of Ice, the last album the group released on Suicide Squeeze Records before leaving the Seattle-based indie label for a stint at Dangerbird Records. But then last year, Minus the Bear reunited with Suicide Squeeze to drop the 10-track Voids and have been touring North America in support of it ever since.

Philly punk outfit Beach Slang, who currently have two full lengths under their belt after last year’s sophomore effort A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings on Polyvinyl, opened the show.
