The Monday Set: Bear In Heaven – Katowice – 8/8/10

Bear In Heaven
Off Festival
Katowice, Poland
8/8/10

I was a day behind in getting this “Monday Set” posted, but hopefully it was worth the wait. Here’s a fantastic live Bear In Heaven recording that I traded for last year. It was the first date of their fall/winter tour which spanned nearly four months. They’ve played a handful of dates here and there since that tour, but none near Los Angeles. Here’s hoping the lack of tour dates is due to a forthcoming album.

Setlist
1. Beast In Peace
2. Ultimate Satisfaction
3. Wholehearted Mess
4. Fake Out
5. Dust Cloud
6. Lovesick Teenagers
7. Deafening Love
8. Drug A Wheel
9. You Do You
10. Casual Goodbye
11. Lovesick (Lindstrom & Christabelle Cover)

The Monday Set: Bear In Heaven – Los Angeles – 7/27/10


Bear In Heaven
The Echo
Los Angeles, CA
7/27/10

Bear In Heaven came through Los Angeles last March with Cymbals Eat Guitars but I greatly underestimated the popularity of the two groups and the show ended up selling out before I bought tickets. Determined to not make the same mistake again, I purchased tickets to last week’s Bear In Heaven show far in advance. That proved to be a good call since the show ended up selling out (again). Those fortunate enough to purchase advance tickets were treated to one of the best shows I’ve seen this year. And though I thoroughly enjoyed the show, I don’t think anyone enjoyed it as much as the young lady (and I use the term “lady” loosely) who kept asking the band about mustache rides throughout the set.

Setlist:
1. Beast In Peace
2. Ultimate Satisfaction
3. Wholehearted Mess
4. Fake Out
5. Dust Cloud
6. Lovesick Teenagers
7. Deafening Love
8. Drug A Wheel
9. You Do You
10. Bag Of Bags
11. Casual Goodbye
12. Lovesick (Lindstrom & Christabelle Cover)

Bear In Heaven – Wholehearted Mess

When I hear a band described as “prog-rock” or that’s generally a surefire turnoff. But as with all submissions to TSOI, I’ll give everything a listen. This track submitted from Bear In Heaven’s forthcoming “Beast Rest Forth Mouth” was interesting enough that I deemed the record deserved a full download and I’m glad I did. I’m having a hard time describing the record short of it fitting in nicely in the era of late-’80s/early-’90s 4AD greatness. Look for their sophomore release on Hometapes on October 13, with this song being released as a limited edition 12″ September 8th.
