During a cover of INXS’ hit “Don’t Change,” Los Angeles act Dear Boy surprised fans last night (September 24) with a surprise guest appearance by AFI singer Davey Havok.
Dear Boy singer Ben Grey welcomed Havok to the stage to an elated crowd during the song’s second verse. The two completed the song alternating lyrics back and forth. Released in October 1982, “Don’t Change” was the second single from INXS’s third studio album Shabooh Shoobah and rose to No. 17 stateside.
Last night marked the third week in Dear Boy’s September residency at tiny Los Angeles venue, the Bootleg Theater. While the foursome in Dear Boy are busy promoting their self-titled debut EP, AFI will head out on a fall U.S. tour in support of their October 22nd release, ninth album Burials. Kicking off October 7 at Boston’s Royale, the Burials Tour will wrap up November 1 at Seattle’s Showbox at the Market.
