A coworker turned me on to La Blogotheque today. It is a really extraordinary site where you can watch impromptu music videos and previously recorded live performances from some of the best musicians out there. Vampire Weekend’s performance was particularly impressive. The site really is amazing. It is in French so I would encourage you Americans, like myself, to click around until you uncover all the content that’s on the table. One part of the site that you absolutely cannot miss is the “Concerts A Emporter” section. There are some really exciting performances there.
Why don’t we have anything like this stateside yet? It’s a brilliant idea. This site makes me want to get out there and see more shows. It’s perfect for a Friday afternoon.
