The Dead Weather @ Bataclan , Paris June 30 2010

The Dead Weather + The Cavaliers @ Bataclan
Paris June 30 2010
Last gig for June.
The Dead Weather @ the hot & sweaty Bataclan, still no air conditioning in this theatre.

First we have a French Surf Music band: The Cavaliers, they've done a decent set.
Then it's time for The Dead Weather to rock the house.
it's the fourth time we're seeing them after La Cigale on June 29 2009, TV Show L' Album de la Semaine on June 30 2009 (just one year ago) & The Olympia on Oct 28 2009.( Click for review Pics & videos)

When we saw them @ La Cigale and @ the Canal+ Tv show we were a bit dissapointed as the band was lacking real songs but there's not doubt that it was powerful.
The album when it came out was also a bit of a let down.

Still haven't listen to the new record yet (once again), still very bluesy & raw.
The band is powerful but it's so hot in here that Jack & Alison are complaining about the heat and lack of AC and they are right. It's hot as hell.
Patrice, our photographer, is also complaining about the light show, I know mate it's hard to take a decent Pic with this band.
Anyway even though they're still lacking proper songs they've done a killer set

Jack is coming down the front, a couple of times, to sing ( and play guitar), here on video.
Too bad the gig was so short they've just done a little bit more than an hour set.
setlist to come shortly
