The Electric Factory was filled by a ragtag sea of Generation Y fans on Friday to see Seattle indie rockers Minus The Bear.

Aero Flynn warmed up the stage with eerily distorted vocals, heavy guitars and an almost unsettlingly intimate atmosphere as vocalist Josh Scott swayed and danced with eyes closed and arms outstretched.

Hailing from Indiana, indie folk rockers Murder by Death followed, lifting the atmosphere by encouraging the audience to clap along with their songs. With a unusual arsenal of instruments, including a cello, the band performed as the crowd sang in unison. It seemed that many attendees came to see more than Minus The Bear.

Headliners Minus the Bear gave their fans a big dose of nostalgia, performing all their hits from their 2005 album Menos el Oso. Dedicated fans swayed all night long to the decade-old classics. After a brief encore, they shuffled out into the cold, clutching memorabilia to their chests, satisfied with a night fueled by thoughts of yesteryear.
