Five things to do this week in Byron Bay
1. Boy and Bear
AUSTRALIAN hit band Boy & Bear bring their Limit Of Love regional tour of Australia to Byron Bay, presented by triple J.
Fresh from a stellar set at Splendour and the Grass, the five- time ARIA award winners released their third studio album Limit Of Love in 2015.
The LP, met with rave reviews, was recorded in Peter Gabriel's Real World Studio.
Their first single released from the album, Walk the Wire was instantly added to triple J (reaching #1 Most Played) and continues to be supported by the national broadcaster as well as the Triple M Network.
Their second single, Limit Of Love, also garnered support and airplay from triple J.
The album is a recording that is less about fine-tuning everything to the nth degree, and more about capturing a band at the height of their powers in an honest, organic way.
It's an approach most modern bands would be too scared to try, but for Boy & Bear, that leap of faith has proven to be a very successful masterstroke.
At the Beach Hotel tomorrow from 8pm.
From the team behind Railway Wonderland, Dreamland is NORPA's new work to be performed at Eureka Hall.
NORPA and an exciting creative collective bring the universal stories of our community halls to life in a glorious evening of music, laughter, dance and performance.
