The Brooklyn trio Bear In Heaven played last night at the First Unitarian Church. Their excellent indie electronica pop sounding new album, I Love You, It’s Cool, is out on Dead Oceans Records. You can download the song “The Reflection of You” below.
Bear In Heaven
Bear In Heaven performs with Blouse and Doldrums at 8 p.m. at First Unitarian Church; tickets to the all-ages show are $13.
Acid Mothers Temple performs with Phantom Family Halo and The Clang Quartet at 9 p.m. at Johnny Brenda’s; tickets to the 21+ show are $13.
Philadelphia’s Sun Airway returns home from tour with a couple of new friends in tow: Bear In Heaven and Twin Shadow. Both acts hail from Brooklyn, are kind of a big deal on the Internet, and dabble in the kind of experimental electro-pop that makes them perfect touring partners for a band like Sun Airway; but, while the local electronic duo has been on the road with the former for the last month (in support of the recently released Nocturne Of Exploded Crystal Chandelier—which is easily one of our favorite Philly albums of 2010), they only hooked up with the latter last night. Sun Airway will take the opening slot during their own homecoming show tonight at Johnny Brenda’s, but they’ll be the first to tell you it’s for a good reason: Bear In Heaven’s 2009 Beast Rest Fourth Mouth and Twin Shadow’s 2010 Forget have garnered consistent critical acclaim since their respective releases—and neither act is one that most bands would want to follow up on stage. Sun Airway opens for Bear In Heaven and Twin Shadow at 9 p.m. at Johnny Brenda’s; tickets to the 21+ show are $12.
Also playing: Kate Nash + Peggy Sue at Theatre Of Living Arts (8 p.m., $33.25)
