Them Indie Folks: Blue Bear and Walker Lukens

Blue Bear is an indie/folk band from Austin, Texas. Not just another indie/rock band from Austin, Texas however. Comprised of six members: Jeremy Holmsley, Casey Arthur, Khoury Moore, Jared Shaw, Daniel Cole, and Reno Tandy, Blue Bear has a “warm yet urgent vibe,” combining rockabilly licks with Americana-esque harmonies. At any given time during a Blue Bear set, there will be 3-6 guitars rattling off respective renditions of the melody at hand. This depth soothes while it volumizes, like a nice cucumber-based conditioner, I guess. Made with the finest indie rock roots side of the Mississippi, a dash of Fleet Fox, and a cup of future promise, Blue Bear will leave your scalp feeling refreshed and invigorated.

Joining Blue Bear are special guests Walker Lukens and his five-piece backing band: The Sidearms. Lukens released his most recent album, Devoted, in April 2013. Since then, he’s been hitting the show circuit with The Sidearms and making a big buzz on the way, sharing stages with big names like Band of Horses. While bridging the gap between indie rock and indie pop, and with full support from The Sidearms, Walker Lukens is at full potential in concert settings. Confident yet graceful, bold yet breezy, Lukens is guaranteed to make you feel some kind of way. Come see a show.
