Take Away Shows

25 Apr 2007

I am not really sure how I made it to Take Away Shows, but the internet is a strange place that leads to many doors. Well, this door proved to have all types of shiny booty behind it.

“You meet a band. You take them outside, in the streets, and ask them to play there, shoot the movie in one unique shot, whatever happens. Those are the Take-Away Shows, the weekly Video podcast from french weblog La Blogothèque.” - About

Take Away Shows is actually the English version of the French site, Les Concerts a Emporter, which are both part of the weblog, La Blogotheque. They film a lot of great bands in a unique environment without editing, and from the ones I have watched so far, it turns out beautiful.

Their video seems to be stored on DailyMotion, a video and social networking site. Here is their La Blogotheque DailyMotion Profile. Vincent Moon directs the videos. They offer an HD version of their videos when they first get posted, then just regular videocast after that.

Here is a list of All Take Away Concerts. This new one is Andrew Bird performing as he walks through the streets of Paris.

Daytrotter is a partner of Take Away Shows that offers free audio downloads of great musicians. Another great site.

“These fine people – as they’re traveling through America’s heartland – take two hours out of their travels between shows to stop in for a Daytrotter Session at Futureappletree Studio One in downtown Rock Island, IL” - About

Amazing!
