Wed 30 Jul – CocoRosie, Moriarty, Coming SoonMoriarty
were fine, of course. Their friendship with the kids of Coming Soon
(the drummmer is 14 !) was refreshing (both invited each other do play one of their song, leading to about 15 people on stage).
, filling the hole of the disengagement of Beirut, were clearly not the pop-folk
replacement you'd dream of, and frankly, I really did not get into their music (and stageplay either : only an arty vid, the artists were ghosts in black light) and seeing so much (younger than me) people enjoy them made me wonder if I'm not losing touch with some new music trends.
This being said, I was comforted when an intern at work told me, the day after, that their recorded music is much better than what they did on stage. So, note to self : try one of their albums. Open to suggestions.
