Bear Hands impresses at ‘The Nightmare’

On the evening of Nov. 11, Bear Hands took the stage to an empty house at The Nightmare. Apparently the Dallas music scene has overlooked the emerging band.

Members of the three opening bands made up the majority of audience, forcing Bear Hands to swallow their pride and put on a personal show.

With no need to worry about the energy of a stage performance, Dylan Rau (vocalist) created a personal experience by joking about the lack of attendance and telling stories of how some songs came to be in an atmosphere that exuberated casualty.

Considering the band’s rapid fan growth, this may have been one of the last times Bear Hands could be seen this privately and for such a low cost. Both Rau’s vocals and the techno-indie style that the band weaves into stirring lyrics takes on a distinct sound which aids in distinguishing them from other bands.

This sound, along with the release of their new album, “The Burning Bush Supper Club,” has been a hit amongst fans. If given the chance, take the time to see them live.

Bear Hands is definitely a band to keep an eye open for and if you were unfortunate enough to miss the concert, it is still never late to purchase an album.
