Blogotheque’s Take Away Shows

Posted in blog, Media, music by aldorf on December 21, 2009

What a nice discovery this afternoon. I instantly became a big fan of these “Take Away Shows”. I love these little performances. Can”t Believe they are around since 2006 already!

Every week, they 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 film the whole session. Of course, what makes the beauty of it is all the little incidents, hesitations, and crazy stuff happening unexpectedly. Besides, they do not edit the videos so they look perfectly flawless, instead keep the raw sound of the surroundings. The goal is to try and capture instants, film the music just like it happens, without preparation, without tricks. Spontaneity is the keyword. So cool!

There are so many great performances, Phoenix, Beirut, Lambchop, Fleet Foxes, White Rabbits, José Gonzaléz,
Vampire Weekend and many many more, check it out on,4255

Vodpod videos no longer available.
