Being a person who likes both boys and bears, I knew I’d like these five guys from Sydney even before my ears were treated to their folk-rock wonderfulness.

It’s sold out, but perhaps you could mug a few folky beardy types near the venue – that’s a joke by the way, we don’t actually condone theft of any kind. Really.
Here’s a pretty nice video they’ve done. I kinda want that hat.
