Benjamin Biolay @ Fnac Montparnasse, Paris Nov 30 2012

Benjamin Biolay @ Fnac Montparnasse, Paris Nov 30 2012

French singer  Benjamin Biolay is promoting his latest album by playing a small acoustic show @ Fnac Montparnasse on this friday night. We are a bit late and... and it's packed, impossible to get in. Impossible is NOT Rockerparis so we managed to get in a nd get a good spot on the side.
I've never really paid attention to what he's doing and heard any of his songs and in fact it was much better than expected. Can't be bad with so evident Serge Gainsbourg influences.
Should listen to his records one day.

The only time we saw Benjamin Biolay on a stage was for the play Pop'Pea @ theatre du Chatelet last May (also featuring Carl Barat, Marc Almond among others) and the poor sucker was ridiculous singing English so was the play.
