A Take Away Show is awesome because they film different bands as they roam around Paris (and other cities) playing impromptu concerts for all to enjoy.

In order to prepare myself for this weekend’s upcoming Dispatch show, I checked out The Last Dispatch documentary which details the steps leading up to the band’s “final concert.” Dispatch along with Napster are the original dudes behind making music free and accessible to everyone. Their ‘last concert’ drew a crowd of over 110,000 fans to witness their free show.
After listening to some Dispatch jam sessions its hard to believe these guys had to break up because of fighting when the music they create together is so amazingly cohesive.
I’m stoked these guys are giving it another go at touring after this spring’s release of Dispatch EP!

These three guys from Australia sure make creating music look like a whole lot of fun.
Not to mention some crazy guitar skills too!

Gogol Bordello is badass, plain and simple. And not just because of the moustache.
Check out their artist statement below:
Gogol Bordello’s task is to provoke audience out of post-modern aesthetic swamp onto a neo-optimistic communal movement towards new sources of authentic energy. With acts of music, theatre, chaos and sorcery Gogol Bordello confronts the jaded and irony-diseased. Our treatment of the traditional material is free with us, but is not irony-driven and thus real. Our theatre is chaotic and spontaneous and because of that is alarming and response provoking.
From where we stand it is clear that World’s cultures contain material for endless art possibilities and new mind-stretching combinations, raw joy and survival energy. We chose to work with Gypsy, Cabaret and punk traditions. It’s what we know and feel. And so many more are possible that can make the beloved statement of post-modernism “everything is been done” sound as an intellectual error. The troubadours of neo-authentic are comin as a trans-global Art syndicate family that has never been witnessed before. PARTY!

The Silent Comedy is an up-and-coming California band with a unique sound and original aesthetic.
Judging by this video of the band live at The Casbah, they’ll be putting on quite the live show as well!

I’m never really too sure what defines a genre these days. Seems like music just keeps getting better and better the more artists collaborate to create unique sounds!
