The Take-Away Shows

Similar to NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts the The Take-Away Show (Les Concerts à Emporter) tries to capture indie artists in a more intimate environment.  The show on French site La Blogotheque features artists performing, mostly acoustically, in locations we are not used to seeing them like on a public bus or inside an elevator.  Sure, its a little strange but I like getting to see a little more of an artists personality when they are put in situations that they are not used to.  The videos were originally shot by indie filmmaker Vincent Moon but he has since moved on to other projects.

For those of you not familiar with the format I have posted an old one, featuring Local Natives (who are just about the perfect band for this style), and a new one, of the Taiwan via Montreal based singer/songwriter Alex Zhang Hungtai who performs under the moniker Dirty Beaches.
