Bear's Den // Live in Dublin

Our lovely friend Lisa was able to catch Bear's Den in Dublin the other evening, have a look at our newest gallery of our favourite lads and give her review a spin!

The Workman’s Club, situated in the center of Dublin’s Temple Bar area, played host to the London-based bearded trio Bear’s Den February 8.  

The sold-out crowd lined up along the Liffey River a solid hour before showtime.  Waiting in the wind and cold prior to doors opening to The Workman’s Club, a venue that resembles a big, comfortable, multi-level home.   While that wait would sound uncomfortable for most, the queue was friendly, energetic and jovial – jointly anticipating what they’ve waited months to see:  Bear’s Den in Dublin.   I was certainly no exception, coming from the United States just to see this gig, I couldn’t wait and the queue was well-worth the show I was about to see!  A fan since the Den’s beginning, and seeing them live numerous times in the States, I was more excited than ever to see the boys live in Ireland.   

With support from Rukhsana MerriseBear’s Den brought down the house – as they always do.  Incorporating their constant humble repertoire and comical banter in-between songs, Andrew Davie, Kev Jones & Joey Haynes started off the set with global crowd favorite ‘Elysium’.  They sounded great and more relaxed with their set than ever before.  A full twelve songs later, the three lads were in the middle of the audience of the packed house.  This seems to be turning into their trademark move, performing a beautiful completely acoustic rendition of Bad Blood, before finishing up back on stage with their heart-felt ‘Sahara’. The appreciative crowd, not missing a lyric the entire night, could not have been more pleased with the set list as they combined both old and new tunes.  The band was humbled by the crowd’s approval, a quality I truly hope they never lose as they become increasingly famous – as I know they will.
