Polar Bear @ The Lantern // Thurs  23rd Apr (8pm) // Cost: £14 

Polar Bear by Jacek Zmarz 11

Our love for all things Polar Bear is now well documented (2014 reviews/2015 reviews) and frankly is becoming somewhat disturbing… even to us!! That said new album Same as You is a tour-de-force and Bear are simply too good to ignore.

So get your selves down to the Lantern and see why our infatuation is bordering on obsession.

Check back as well for our review on Thursday.
