“Cowboy Indian Bear is a band that is important to Lawrence because they lead by example. A few months ago, they played a packed show at a local venue, and put a brand new band on the lineup. Giving a new band a slot on such a big show is a grand gesture of generosity, and as I was leaving the Arts Center on Friday, I spotted the guitarist for that band in the corner, quietly singing all the lyrics to himself. This is the new generation, the new crop of musicians, and they’re in good hands when a band like Cowboy Indian Bear takes them under their wing.”
