Boy & Bear

Wednesday is for drinking with the seldom seen kid

Elbow is a band that only had a limited awareness of when we were in the UK. This was an oversight on my part, they’re now one of my favourite bands and now that we’ve seen them live they’re also one of my favourite live bands.

We drove up to Auckland for a Wednesday night concert at The Powerstation. We waited outside for doors to open and chatted with other people and the consensus was that the audience would be largely British and this proved to be the case. The concert was fantastic, right from the opening act Boy & Bear who impressed a crowd largely ignorant of this up and coming Australian band.

Everything turned up a notch when Guy Garvey and the rest of the band appeared on stage, the crowd enthusiastically applauding every song as Guy charmed us all, even suppressing the small loud group near the stage into quietness with his polite and gracious banter. For full reviews read the following, I think the Stuff article is the closest to the experience we had:
