An Australian, a New Zealander and a camera walk into a church…

It sounds a bit like a joke. It isn’t a church anymore, but Paradiso is a fine concert venue. We were reminded that Boy & Bear were going to be back in the Netherlands by reading a post on another blog. It was Rabbit Song that convinced me at the end that this was a band worth paying attention to.

And we were not at all disappointed. The greatest highlight for us, from this Australian band, was the cover of Crowded House – a Kiwi-Aussie crossover point that had us captivated.

My camera work is very amateur, so maybe it’s better to close your eyes.


Filming by PJD at Paradiso, Amsterdam; yelling at the end, CIA. Also, special mention of the Canadian guy who wouldn’t shut up until I told him to stop being a dick – “oh great!”, he said in the middle of the song, “some Canadiana!”. Way not to be cool, man.

  1. Your first blog video! His voice is perfectly suited to this song. I’m trying to think who his voice reminds me of… stumped.

    • It’s technically, and actually, our second blog video. But given your recent internet travails, I forgive the oversight.

      I think the voice is somewhere between The Panics and Ryan Adams. Discuss.
