Grinderman feat. Nick Cave + Anna Calvi @ Cité de la Musique, Paris Oct 26 2010

Grinderman feat. Nick Cave + Anna Calvi
@ Cité de la Musique, Paris 26 Oct 2010
Anna Calvi
Dont be late when you go to a gig @ La Cité de la Musique or the Salle Pleyel ( same owner), if it's written 8:00PM on your ticket, show starts at 8:00PM sharp.
First we have Anna Calvi with a drummer and a girl on some instrument (don't know the name) for some rock'n roll with spanish influences.
Nice starter.
9:00PM It's time for Grinderman feat. Nick Cave , W. Ellis, M. Casey, J. Sclavunos to storm the stage in front of a full house.
Grinderman is a side-project which is getting more interesting than The Bad Seeds.
Last time Nick Cave played in Paris at the Casino de Paris it was disappointing, there was something lacking and we didn't go last year to his show @ Theatre Marigny.
After seeing Grinderman tonight we now know what was lacking: Madness & fury.
Nick Cave is wild again on stage and so is the music, same can be said about Warren.
This is what I call : A Rock 'n Roll show. Always on the edge.
Funny to see Nick's kids by the side of the stage getting as crazy as their father.
Impressive 90 min+ set
