Take Away Shows

I have fallen in love with these Take Away Shows from French blog La Blogothèque. The live sessions are shot in a spontaneous and improvised way, creating intimate and beautiful moments of pure emotion and unplanned surprises. They are mainly shot in Paris, but they also have some that were done in NYC and other US Cities. The artists perform as they are walking down the street, in a stranger’s apartment, or even in places like playgrounds and elevators. Such a fun, creative idea. Love it. See for yourself:

Some of my faves:

“Holy Chord”—Dappled Cities

“Jesus Saves, I Spend”—St. Vincent


“Walcott”/”One (Blake’s Got A New Face)”—Vampire Weekend

“God, Make Up Your Mind”—Cold War Kids

“Cowbell”—Tapes ‘N Tapes

“The Knife”—Grizzly Bear
