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).

    This idea reminds me of Music in High Places. The Ryan Adams one is a favorite. Granted, those artists aren’t as eclectic as the ones you present here…but I always loved the idea of putting especially talented musicians in visually interesting places and having them play their music.

    Hmmm, did I just describe music videos?

What’s this?
