You dearly want to see a band that is nowhere close to coming to your town? And you’re tired of watching youtube video footage of some lucky people who did get the chance to see the band, probably with weird angles, awful sound and blurry vision?
The tba family prescribes this smashing weblink: A street, a band and their music. That’s it. That is the whole concept of la blogotheque,a French project with nifty interviews and heart-warming performances of all the great bands nobody really knows. (Ok, that’s an understatement, but it’s not exactly Lady Gaga and Beyonce running around with their guitars on open streets)
La blogotheque is a collection of articles about newish bands and their music and what makes this site a bit better than all the other websites claiming to be “the” great discoverer of the next great artist, are the take away shows, which you can also watch via youtube.
Just imagine: A small street somewhere in France; the mighty drums of Architecture in Helsinki being heard before a choir chirps in on the song.
A cosy café in Paris; in the corner sits a young man hammering on his keyboard, the guy next to him starts singing a song about a girl named Mandy; introducing them as two sixth of Spinto Band. (The very first take away show by the way)
An empty gym; in the middle a man and his guitar. Jens Lekman – need I say more?
There are more than a hundred of those take away shows, with bands you’ll have heard of and some just waiting to be ‘discovered’ by you.
