Band of Horses + Lambchop @ Cité de la Musique, Paris July 1st 2013

Band of Horses + Lambchop @ Cité de la Musique, Paris July 1st 2013

Special "Acoustic" performance by Band of Horses tonight @ Cité de la Musique for the DAYS OFF Festival
After The Black Crowes & Bruce Springsteen these last few days,  Couldn't start this week better with two great sets by LAMBCHOP & BAND OF HORSES.
  
First band on stage is LAMBCHOP, never really heard of them before, so that was a complete discovery: Great songs, acoustic set that is warm and cozy with class, the way they play is a bit jazzy and folk at the same time with some clarinet on some songs to add extra flavor. The acoustic guitar sound is very soft and so is the voice of the singer.
Classy...

Then we have a -Special Acoustic set- by Band of Horses, only for Paris.
Glad to see Band of Horses again after all these years, in 2010 and 2011 we probably attend 5-6 of their gigs including  sets for TV or radios, festivals and headlining show.
They started nicely with 3 voices and a piano then we had several configurations with just an acoustic guitar or piano or with the whole band.
It's more conventional than Lambchop  but their songs are sounding terrific Even on acoustic.
Great set, maybe they could have played longer, only 70 min show.
