The Dandy Warhols @ Bataclan Dec 7th 2008

the title says it all

The Bataclan is SOLD-OUT for the return of The Dandy Warhols in Paris , France.
They're here to promote new cd " " . They're not on a Major anymore but who cares as long as they're still playing music.
First i have to admit , i didn't hear the new cd but with The dandy Warhols LIVE you know that they're gonna play many songs from the whole catalogue , as last time in the very same place they've played for more than 3 hours .
I arrived too late to watch support band The Sheep , well in fact i was talking to a couple of mates outside.
To fully appreciate the Dandy Warhols , you really have to be IN it and know the songs before seeing them in concert otherwise you'll get the impression that they're playing the same song over and over again ( well sort of ... ).
Of course , they're playing in the dark with some psychedelic lights behind them for the atmosphere .
Lots of mid-tempo songs to get you in the mood a few Hits to headbang or at least jump in rythm ( for the people down the front ) with a few stage-divers.
We even get a song for Christmas and an almost disco song ( sung partially in French : " 3rd world" ) and a couple of requests from the audience , so the initial setlist ( here pictured ) isn't accurate , Sorry .
With The Dandy you're never disappointed ( i can hear some people screaming to me : untrue ,when they opened for David Bowie a few years ago ), but they never played Fantastic gig either.
So i guess this one was a good one but could have been better.

Setlist ( incomplete ? )
