Nick Oliveri acoustic set @ Truskel, Paris July 21st 2014

Nick Oliveri acoustic set @ Truskel, Paris July 21st 2014

Nick Oliveri former Kyuss & QOTSA bass player is playing a rare solo acoustic show in Paris.
It's a the tiny Truskel where we saw Peter Doherty performed so many times.
It was supposed to be a "guest list" show but in fact it's a "first come , first serve" basis.
We have a support band from Lille that is sounding like QOTSA, so it can't be bad.

Nick is in fine spirit, doing very good, smiling , talking a lot, joking with the audience and screaming like a maniac. The guitar playing is acoustic but he's screaming as if he was playing electric with QOTSA or Mondo Generator in front of 5 000 kids.
it's hot a hell in there, those bastards have turned off the air conditioning and we're all sweating buckets of water.
We are treated with a best of setlist with a new song, songs from Mondo generator, Kyuss, QOTSA of course and some covers including a Ramones' one , a GG Alin and probably a couple of others I can't remember ( one from an English Punk band ). The setlist below is not accurate as he didn't follow it.
Nick has lots of stories to tell between songs, we're glad to know that he will be playing with QOTSA in L.A. for a reunion show on Halloween. Some funny stories involving his wife and how he fucks like a teenager...and so on...always with a big smile on his face.
As you can see on the video below , the audience participation is required... so cool...
Nick ended up exhausted and a bit drunk as well but that was worth it , great kick ass gig

Miraculously after the 90 min show ended the air conditioning was back on...

The Rolling Stones slot machine arriving in France @ Casino Barrière

The Rolling Stones slot machine @ Casino Barrière,  Enghien-les-Bains, France, July 19 2014
French Casino Chain "Casino Barrière" has just received the brand new The Rolling Stones' slot machine ( machine à sous in French)
The first of its kind in France as The Rolling Stones is the first band to have its own slot machine in France.
We went to the Casino d'Enghien-les-Bains on this hot saturday afternoon as its the nearest casino outside Paris (there are no casinos in Paris).
it is just by the lake where we saw The Blues Brothers band in 2011, it looks a bit like Montreux without the mountains.
First floor are all the slot machines, they do have posters everywhere promoting the new machines and you are going through the mouth to get into the room which is funny.
Even in the mens & ladies rooms, mirrors are stoned. (see below)
 The Casino / stairway to heaven / Bathroom

 Stickers & Posters
 Entrance through a big tongue (sorry couldn't take a pic of the whole thing as we could see some of  the players behind and were not allowed to have players on our pic for obvious reasons)

I still had in mind the old machine with the coins like in old movies, nope it's the 21st century... They still do have the old style in the room but lots of new machines everywhere including one from "The Mummy" movie.

2 ROLLING STONES slot machines and the tongue on the floor behind the seats

Lots of pictures on the Stones' one with live footage from concerts and many different tongues from different countries, there is some music too to listen to while playing : "Start me up".

Funny experience to play on slots machines specially the Rolling Stones' one as it was the first time ever that we were going into a casino.

some of the images appearing on the machine including Pics from The Trabendo gig in Paris, France. 

Petite visite au Casino Barrière d' Enghien-le Bains, près de Paris en ce samedi chaud et ensoleillé afin d'essayer les nouvelles machines à sous ROLLING STONES. Direction le premier étage et la salle des machines. Difficile de passer à coté il y a des affiches "stones" partout, même l'entrée des toilettes est décorée de la langue ainsi que les miroirs au dessus du lavabo. L'entrée de salle se fait en passant sous un porche et en entrant dans la bouche à l' effigie des Stones puis le parcours jusqu'aux machines est "fléché" par des langues collées sur la moquette de la salle. (voir photos)
Difficile d'y avoir accès, c'est une nouveauté et comme toute nouveauté, les habités veulent l'essayer.
Tout d'abord le look: la machine est entièrement aux couleurs stoniennes, il y a deux écrans qui diffusent au fur et à mesure de la partie (1 euro minimum et jusqu'a 4 euros quand même) des images fixes de Mick, Keith, Ronnie et Charlie (dont certaines photos prises au Trabendo) ainsi que quelques petites vidéos du groupe en action sur scène alors que la musique de "Start me up " et "Iorr" se fait entendre. Sympa.
N'étant pas des pro ni même des habitués des bandit manchot, on n'a pas vraiment compris le fonctionnement, si ce n'est bien sûr qu'il fallait aligner des "langues" pour gagner en appuyant sur le bouton.
je dois dire que l'on en était resté, pour les machines à sous, à ce que l'on voit dans les vieux films avec des pièces de monnaie et à la poignée qu'on abaissait.
Désormais c'est un simple bouton et un écran tactile; plus de pièces, la machine accepte les billets et pour récupérer vos gains c'est pas l'intermédaire d'une carte à code barres permettant de se faire payer à la caisse, c'est moins fun mais plus efficace et c'est moins lourd dans la poche, comme pour la petite vieille devant nous qui est reparti avec 500 euros... on a eu moins de chance malheureusement.
Petite après-midi très sympa.
Un conseil: ne pas oublier ses boules quies

silver train a comin'... No, Tongue a lickin'
 Thanks to the Barrière team for inviting us and letting us take pictures and video of the machine
(Don't do this next time you are visiting as it's strictly forbidden.)

-M- (Matthieu Chédid) @ Fnac Live, Parvis de l'Hotel de Ville de Paris, 17 Juillet 2014

-M- (Matthieu Chédid) @ Fnac Live, Parvis de l'Hotel de Ville de Paris, 17 Juillet 2014
Concert gratuit sur le Parvis de l'Hotel de Ville de Paris organisé par la Fnac comme tous les ans. Plus les années passent et plus l'affiche est lamentable et plus elle est grand public.Ca doit certainement aller ensemble, a quand Johnny Hallyday ?
Cette année c'est vraiment la cata. On a quand même décidé de sortir ce soir, ça fait du bien de prendre l'air un peu après la chaleur de cette journée ensoleillée.
Nous sommes juste venu pour -M- alias Matthieu Chédid, excellent guitariste, les trouvailles scéniques (lightshow, lunettes) rendent superbement, malheureusement la musique ce n'est pas vraiment ça et le show est plombé par des reprises et des medleys qui frisent le ridicule ("7 Nation army" des White Stripes entre autres) et ce coté bien franchouillard du "allez les enfants on chante tous ensemble". Vraiment dommage.
