Mike Noga (above) & Ben Bridwell from BoH on the far right
Another sold-out show in Paris after PJ Harvey, Razorlight, Skunk Anansie...
This time it is for one of the best, if not the best, new band to appear these last few years.
This is our 5th show since April 2010 ( L'Album de la semaine TV Show on April 07 , La Fleche d'Or on April 08, Rock en Seine Festival on August 27 and C'est Lenoir Black Session on August 30 ) and each time they have deliver a great performance.
[Click on links for reviews with Pics, setlist & videos]Mike Noga & the Gents, we thought that Band of Horses were already playing as the guys were jamming with Mike Noga. It was rocking.
For Band of Horses there is a huge backdrop in the back that will play images of the band live at different concerts & festivals + images of landscapes and animals so the lightshow is not too bright (read crap).
On album the music is more ambient but live these motherfuckers are rocking, the first 4-5 songs were smoking before they played more mid-tempo songs.
It's the first time I see them interacting like this between each-other, usually they are very focus on the music ... almost too serious.
They should be acting more often like this, Mike Noga and his Gents are returning the favour by playing with Band of Horses for a song to everyone's laughter including band members of both bands.
Smell the Horse !
