So, the Dodos apparently did a take away show. It’s for current TV and it’s not very high quality, and it lacks the cinematic flourishes that take away shows usually have. They have a more real one here, but I can’t embed it because wordpress doesn’t like anything other than youtube.
Click here for the Dodos’ real show which I can’t embed. It starts with an awesome rendition of “Fools,” but you have to wait a minute or so for it to build.
If you don’t know, take away shows are improvised concerts done with acoustic instruments in a public setting, usually in the streets of Paris. They usually have pretty interesting reinterpretations of songs (see: Grizzly Bear’s acapella version of “Knife”) and always feature great camera work. The most interesting moments during these shows come when a band does something entirely off-the-wall. For example, Phoenix during their show boarded a double-decker tour bus, went to the second story and sat down in the back while still playing their song.
The website for these shows is lablogotheque.net. Check it out.
