Elkfest adds Minus the Bear as headliner

Elkfest, the venerable music gathering that takes over a significant amount of Browne's Addition June 6-8, announced its lineup a few weeks ago, and it was a strong one. It even included local hero James Pants.

But they were saving the headliner announcement for last, and if you've already procured a copy of this week's Inlander, you might have seen the ad. Now headlining the festival is Seattle's technical rockers Minus the Bear.

The band, known for its mathematical take on indie rock, complete with wacky changes and the sort of time signatures music geeks will drool over, is touring sparingly this summer, including a couple shows celebrating the 10th anniversary of their quintessential EP They Make Beer Commercials Like This.

It's a nice booking for Elkfest, which, believe it or not, is celebrating its own 10th anniversary this year. The festival is still free and still all ages.
