Foals @ L' Album de la Semaine Canal+, Paris April 27th 2010 + Anto Dust @ Pop'In

Foals @ L' Album de la Semaine Canal+
Paris April 27th 2010
English band from Oxford Foals is promoting its brand new album by playing famous Canal+ tv show in front of a selected audience of 200 people.
I've never heard them before but they have rave reviews in the english press I thought I might check them out.
Too bad for me, Hate that shit , the singer tries to be the new Robert Smith, they're dressed like shit and the music is very boring.
I hate all these fucking Dance-rock bands, what's the point of having two guitars to used them the way they do ' cling-cling' ?
Between early Cure and Vampire Weekend ( hate this band too) without the african beats.
Boring, Boring & Boring , a real torture they had to re-do 3 songs and they've played an extra one. They also did a song for the first time ever Live ( "Black Gold" ?).
Maybe I was the only one being bored , the others seemed to like it even though they're not convinced by the new record.
Then we went to the Pop'In to see Anto Dust for her second show in Paris (she's playing the Truskel tomorrow night).
We were just on time to see her play.
Very short set once again , less than 30 min
Basically she played the same set as @ Be There ( review below) a couple of days ago.
Beginning on acoustic guitar then only on vocals with Dan Pickard on guitar. Lots of talking and jokes maybe she feels a little bit unsecure being on a stage, she shouldn't , She has good songs ...and lovely tattoos
