Les Concerts À Emporter
May 15, 2007 § 1 Comment
I am loving Les Concerts À Emporter (“Take-Away Shows”) by La Blogothèque, a site that asks bands who are touring through Paris to play an acoustic song or two in public settings — out on the street or, in the case of the Arcade Fire, in a freight elevator.
Other favorites of mine so far include Andrew Bird walking around Montmartre (in the video above) and the Guillemots on a stairway, also in Montmartre (at least I think — that entry is in French, and I can’t really read French anymore). The videos I’ve seen so far have an intimacy that leaves me feeling all warm and fuzzy. I will definitely be signing up for the podcasts.
Update at 10:38: And I just found one of Jens Lekmam playing one of Ian’s favorite songs (this one links to another site called Daily Motion, where La Blogothèque also hosts its videos).
