Bear vs. Shark 

Monday, June 14, at El Torreon.

What would have happened if Jaws had been filmed on Lake Michigan instead of off New England, or if Gentle Ben had been based in Ann Arbor instead of the Everglades? Don't bother trying to make sense out of why an intense quartet from Michigan named itself Bear vs. Shark. All you'll get is a headache, when what you really desire is an earache to salve your heartache. And you'll have ample opportunity to rattle your eardrums and your heartstrings when BVS saunters in with emotional pop-rock from its latest album, Right Now, You're in the Best of Hands. BVS is in not-too-shabby hands itself, signed as it is to Equal Vision, the home of groups such as Armor for Sleep and Coheed and Cambria. For the record, our money is on the shark.
