Boy and Bear
Canberra fans are in for a treat from Boy
and Bear, as they look to thank their fans
for what has been a year of big journeys
and even bigger accomplishments for
this Sydney quintet. Boy and Bear will
be visiting the ANU Bar as part of a
nationwide journey, to reflect on where
it all began and give a nod to those
who made it happen. Not long ago,
the nation was falling in love with one
of Boy and Bear's pivotal first singles,
Mexican Mavis, which was an accidental
statement of intent. The knowledge of
the five gentlemen in Boy and Bear grew,
generated mainly by their passionate
followers and soon the gathering that Boy
and Bear found themselves in had turned
into a congregation.
