Hillbilly Moon Explosion + Laura Gibson @ Fleche d' Or, Paris April 20th 2010 ( & Port O' Brien)

Hillbilly Moon Explosion + Laura Gibson
(+ Port O' Brien )
@ Fleche d'Or, Paris April 20th 2010

Laura Gibson

First on stage is Folk Lady Laura Gibson who already played an Oliver Peel session a few months ago, unfortunately I couldn't attend this one as Charlotte Gainsbourg was playing @ Canal+ on the same night. Laura also opened for Carl Barat & Adam Green @ Pompidou Center (click for review).I arrived there too late to see her.

Anyway she played a nice set of soft songs as only Folk ladies can play.

Hillbilly Moon Explosion

Very different music on the program for the set band to grace the stage of La Fleche d' Or on this tuesday night with The Hillbilly Moon Explosion.
As you can guess and see on the Pics they're playing Hillbilly music.
Very refreshing set, It's been a long time since I've seen playing a rockabilly band.
Always cool to see a girl on vocals for that kind of band it adds something extra and sexy.
Country and rock influences for the Hillbilly Moon Explosion, a little brother of the Stray Cats ( click to see our review of their last show in Paris ) also featuring nice guitar solo à la Django Reinhart.


Port O'Brien is next (review & video above)
