La Maroquinerie

hello,

This week we played our show in Paris at La Maroquinerie. We had a great night. It was the first time we played in front of such an enthousiastic crowd in Paris. Two girls had written J&J on their cheeks it was very cute.
La maroquinerie is a great place to play, the sound is good and the crew is great. Le Prince Miiaou and Gemma Ray played before us.
We had decided to perform more songs from our first album so started the show with 'I can see You' and '1,2,3' that we never played before but very much enjoyed having in the set. The first half of the show was volontarily darker than the rest. All along, we both felt very relaxed and happy to be here. We wanted to take the most of that moment, and we did, up to the encore with '20l07' when people were singing the song.
At the end we played a cover of Bronski Beat, 'Smalltown Boy' and I heard people singing the tune when they were leaving the place.

Today we are in Tours, going to perform at the festival Aucard de Tours. Tomorrow we are back home and will work on some covers project we've had for a while now.

take care all,
and thanks for those you came to see us in Paris.

It was a great show... A little bit too short in my opinion though...
And Le Prince Miiaou was a good starter

Super show les enfants ! C'est clair qu'en terme de qualité sonore la Maroquinerie c'est 20 crans au-dessus de la salle de la cité que vous aviez aux Trans.

Le "oh my love" était un petit bijou, et dans cette version plus rock je le trouve bien meilleur que l'original. A ce propos à quand un album "Live" ? Je dois mettre ma tirelire au régime, à force d'attendre je vais finir par payer l'ISF...

Pour tous ceux qui râlent sur la durée du concert je dirais : ne venez plus, je pourrais emmener plus de potes et on sera moins serrés !

Ca c'était un fuckin' good gig!!!
Mention spéciale à Matt... je n'ai jamais autant aimé le son à la Maro...

Le 1,2,3 m'a fait énormément plaisir et ça reste défitivement ma préférée. Votre joie s'est bien lue sur vos visages, c'était juste énorme!

Des bisous

a bientot

Allez, une petite dernière réclamation pour la route : une chanson en français et un enregistement acoustique.

Ben quoi c'est bientôt noël, non ?
