Phoenix: Music on a bus

28 02 2011

Phoenix – Lizstomania / One time too many – A Take Away Show from La Blogotheque on Vimeo.

My fave band + a bus!!  Music on public transport is something I have blogged about before.

Phoenix playing live bus on Paris….hmm not well not quite the same as listening to them on my ipod on a BCC bus.

Same, same, but different

This is part of awesome “Take away shows” series where every week, la Blogotheque invites an artist or a band to play in the streets, in a bar, a park, or even in a flat or in an elevator.

“…we film the whole session. Of course, what makes the beauty of it is all the little incidents, hesitations, and crazy stuff happening unexpectingly. Besides, we do not edit the videos so they look perfectly flawless, instead we keep the raw sound of the surroundings.  Our goal is to try and capture instants, film the music just like it happens, without preparation, without tricks. Spontaneity is the keyword.”

Just as their films, it speaks to the same magic and spontaneity that might spark out of random conversations in public spaces and bus stops
