If there’s one thing we love more than live music, it’s live music on the street of an exotic city by a band we love (rather than by a busker of course, which we would like, but perhaps not love).
Needless to say we were pretty distraught to hear New York rock lords The Walkmen did an acoustic rendition of “We Can’t Be Beat” to an audience of about 3 in the streets of Paris recently. Distraught because we weren’t there to witness it, and because the people who were there seemed a tad unappreciative.
Not to worry. It was all captured on film by French video crew La Blogotheque as part of Pitchfork Music Festival. We can gaze at it lovingly from our non-exotic offices; uñe average caffé latte in one hand, uñe non-authentic kwàsànt in the other.
We don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
