Miles Kane + Palma Violets + Villagers @ Hotel de Ville de Paris , Fnac Live, July 18 2013
The nice & clean VILLAGERS (above)
Free festival organized by FNAC stores on the Parvis de l'Hotel de Ville. It started yesterday with at least 6 bands playing every night from 5:00pm to 11:00pm.
Tonight IS the night with Miles Kane but we decided to come earlier to check Villagers & Palma Violets, we already saw both bands this year @ L'Album de la Semaine tv show ( Jan 09 2013 for Villagers) & Jan 15 2013 for Palma Violets)
Villagers for some chamber pop-folk, not really the best place to listen to that kind of music, in day light with people talking and drinking wine... they did OK.
Garage rock with PALMA VIOLETS (above)
Different kind of music, now we're talking ! The guys are having fun with some kick ass garage rock, it's a family audience from teenagers to people over 60 and some of those bastards are complaining when youngsters are pogoing down the front.
That's what I like to see, people enjoying themselves. It was rockin' !!!
Palma Violets setlist (far right)
MILES KANE Rockin' with Class (as usual)
Nothing that much to say about Miles Kane, we saw him already dozens of times and it was " encore un sans faute", The guy is Rockin' with Class, lots of catchy songs. All the girls are down the front for him, headbanging like mad. see setlist below for details
Great set !!!
One question though: WHERE THE FUCK DID HE GET THAT COSTUME ?
We left the premises to go home, Oxmo Puccimo and Olivia Ruiz were next, How can we stay for that crap ?
