@ Trabendo
Paris April 16th 2010
The trabendo is Sold-Out show for the New York Dolls in Paris.
Great to have them back to promotote new album " Cause I sez so"
The previous one, when they reformed was probably one of my favorite rock records of the last 5 years.
Last time they've played the Elysée Montmartre and the show was absolutely GREAT.
Lots of old fans and a few youngsters too.
David seemed a bit tired at the beginning, or maybe is it his "droopy" face, Sylvain Sylvain is as cool as ever.
SteVe Conte, on guitar is holding the house.
A few songs from the new album, a few from the previous one (" One day It will please us to remember even this") and lots of oldies.
We had a couple of Bo Diddleys not on the setlist, but I guess that they do it all the time.
See setlist below for details
Even had some dance moves courtesy of Sylvain Sylvain impersonating Michael Jackson to the beat of... "Billy Jean" (click to watch him dance)

NEW YORK DOLLS they foockin' ROCK, MAN !!!

Some "VIPs" were there : French singer Daniel Darc ( former Taxi Girl) , French actor and former punk Rocker : Jean-Piere kalfon & French designer Jean-Carles de Castelbajac who went for a drink with David Johansen at the nearby Café .
