Pains of being pure at Heart @ C'est Lenoir Black session # 307
Paris nov 23rd 2009

Setlist & invitationssss

After leaving Canal+ where we saw Soulman Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears , we headed to Radio France next to the Eiffel Tower for a Black Session with New Yorkers : Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.
We get there just 2 minutes before they went on stage infront of another selected audience of 250 people confortably seated in red sofas like in a movie theatre.
The guys ( and the japanese looking girl on keyboards ) are quite young.
They are playing a mix between English early 80's indie rock and soft american college radio rock.
They have a few good songs including a couple of great ones ( which are sounding like the early Cure ).
Unfortunately most of their repertoire is sounding the same and the last 20 min of the hour show were pretty boring.

Huge billboards in front of Radio France to promote
Rickie Lee Jones' gig there.
