Take Away Shows: Unique FREE Live Concert Videos

I learned about the incredibly unique Take Away Shows from French music blog La Blogothèque in a recent issue of Wired Magazine and had to check it out.

You meet a band. You take them outside, in the streets, and ask them to play there, shoot the movie in one unique shot, whatever happens.

Each week they feature a live “concert” session with a band roaming through unusual urban environments, intermingling with passers-by and interacting with the incredible scenery.

Amazingly, they're always filmed as a single shot with no cuts, so of course spontaneity abounds.

Most of the sessions come from lesser-known bands (at least to me!) but I watched a few from familiar names like Andrew Bird, The Arcade Fired, The Shins, and Beirut.

If you want see live concert videos shot like you've never seen before, don't miss Take Away Shows. C'est fantastique! You can also get their podcast on iTunes and RSS for live music videos on the go.
