Live report: 16th February 2011, FRANK!!!(FR) + ALEXANDER KINN(FR) + THE PHOENIX FOUNDATION(NZ) + WEEKEND(US) at Flèche d'Or, Paris

at Flèche d'Or, Paris
A New Zealand day for me. In the afternoon I met an English teacher who comes from New Zealand. Then, at the gig, the first French band which opened the show has a female lead singer from New Zealand, and I didn't want to miss the New Zealand band The Phoenix Foundation whose performance was their first one in Paris!
As most of the Paris people went to see Alessi's Ark and Noah and The Whale at Café de la Danse or Lulu and The Lampshades at l'International, I was quite surprised to see about 100-120 persons in the audience during the performances of the two French bands, then even more for The Phoenix Foundation! Very warm inside the venue (as usual).

Live report: 7th February 2011, WILLIAM FITZSIMMONS(US) + CAROSEL(IRE) + LUCY ROSE(UK) at l'International, Paris

The most famous of the three acts that night was the first to play. William Fitzsimmons opened the show quite early. Then, the Irish duo Carosel with a percussionist, and finally Lucy Rose with her recent band for her first Paris show. Very crowded on that Monday night at l'International.
