The Heard - Cowboy Indian Bear
Look out Captain Planet… Cowboy Indian Bear has added another element to their already stunning powers.
Last year’s KJHK Farmer’s Ball winner Katlyn Conroy has officially joined forces with this year’s Pitch Music Award winner for Best Indie Pop Artist: Cowboy Indian Bear…. Holy cow… boy… Indian… bear. Sorry, sometimes my cheesiness exceeds its limits. But seriously, I am beyond stoked about this. If Lawrence ever had a super group, this new alliance would definitely be its sidekick. I love both Katlyn and CIB beyond belief. Katlyn has been playing with CIB for awhile now; she is featured on their debut full length, Each Other All the Time. If you haven’t heard it yet…get on it. Now. (http://therecordmachine.net/blog/store).
For those of you who haven’t seen Cowboy Indian Bear yet, I’ll let this one slide, but only if you make an effort to change your ways. The next show in the Lawrence/KC area is October 2nd for The Record Bar Fifth Anniversary Party with The Republic Tigers. Shortly after, they will be playing with the reincarnation of a local legend, Ad Astra Arkestra on October 8th at the Bottleneck. Do everything you can to experience the perfect four part harmonies in person, your ears will thank you. If that is just out of the question, check out www.myspace.com/cowboyindianbear. Also, follow them on twitter at www.twitter.com/bearmusic.
Keep watching, up next on The Heard is Hotchacha, a super rad post punk band from Cleveland. Their energy on stage would make Karen O run for cover. Come out to the Replay tonight (Wednesday September 15th) for their set… I’ll be there, come say “hi”.
Peace Out Girl Scouts,
p.s. - Rachel here, checking in. Welcome to the first episode of The Heard.
This lil' show is the...sequel, if you will, to Backstage with Kacie Faye, a show featured on lawrence.com that I directed for the lovely Miss Kacie Faye. Kacie has left Lawrence, :( , but the show lives on. Wheeee.
