I’ve just discovered something wonderful! They’re a series of video podcasts by La Blogotheque.
Every week, we invite an artist or a band to play in the streets, in a bar, a park, or even in a flat or in an elevator, and 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.
Here are some of my all time favorite bands right now and, guess what!?? They all have mini concerts on La Blogotheque! Check them out or go peruse for YOUR favorite bands too! (Bonus, they have some great little stories about how each video was shot… what some of the hang-ups or great moments were and other little tidbits so it’s definitely worth jogging over to the actual site)
