American Soul rocker Eli "Paperboy" Reed is making a stop in Paris , in the middle of his European Tour , to play a showcase at the Virgin Megastore on the Champs Elysées.
i already saw him a few months ago at famous Canal+ tv "L' Album de la Semaine".
This time that's just him and a guitar player for a short 8 songs set ( one song was left out).
Not a lot of people turned up for this young artist, no more than 50,even though the store was busy.
Cool set but it's much more better with a full band.
Hard to play soul music with just 2 guitars, you need more instruments but we had a good time.
He then met his fans to sign a few cds and take Pics.

Eli & setlist signed

After that we went to the Max Linder movie théatre to attend the Premiere of Performance a movie with Mick Jagger which is finally released on dvd.
We had lots of shit before the movie : a funny Beastie Boys copycat band then a few performers who were allright but their place was at a party for the trendy & arty Palais de Tokyo and NOT here. Then a short movie which once again had nothing to do here before that movie with Mick Jagger & Anita Pallenberg.
