First off, i've got to give mad props to the opening band (and booking agent), Wolfunkind -> http://www.wolfunkind.com/. I was to tired to enjoy them fully in Paris, but these guys play a great tight set of french fpunk, not very far from the F?d?ration Fran?aise du Fonck (FFF) less the horns. A great show, too bad the audience was taken by surprise.<...
WOW, what a great show! Like Denis, I thought the opening band "Wolfunkind" was really great. Everybody should support them and buy their double cd "Cycofonk" at one of Fishbone's concerts or via their website: www.wolfunkind.com. The other support act, PPz30, indeed became a little bit annoying after a while. I just wanted to see the 'bone man! I was really curious about the new line-up, and my e...
I was also there and i really spent a good time. I wasn't expecting them to play that long and was glad to see that they're still giving a lot of themselves on stage. I liked Angelo "crazyness" (in french we say "folie") and energy. It is a night I won't forget as didn't forget the first time I saw the band at AB twelve years ago. It was a revelation. And this time as I'm older I can say I rea...
Comment un tel groupe peut-il "tenir" aussi longtemps (+ de 20ans!)... Quand tu as assisté à ce concert, t' as compris! A+ (see you soon)
I finally have found the time to write the required review of a superb show....
I only got to the Botanique by 21h30 due to late work and traffic jam, so I missed the opening band Wolfundkind, and I only caught few songs of the other opening act PPZ30...
I had made some flyers (ca 100) to promote fishbone.net, fishbonelive....
It's been a long time i hadn't seen them outside festivals. There's no comparison. You really get the real power of this band on stage at their own gig. It's amazing that a band that you have seen many times can still amaze you at that point. It's now clear, this band is synonym of positivism, life, energy and love. Thank you all on stage and the former members.
I really enjoyed the reviews everyone wrote so far, so I'm sure that mine is going to be repetitive and boring. But I have to reiterate that this was one of the best concerts of my life because it was POSITIVE and fun. I hate even calling it a concert because it was so much more than that. Concert implies that it was merely music being played when this was actually more like a party or movement. And I'm not exaggerating when I say that this show changed my life for the better. I know it sounds nutts but I feel like I went into that show one way, and came out a few hours later completely drained both physically and mentally. I could do nothing but drink water and sit for the longest time and try to figure out what happened just before. There was such a positive energy on the stage that was transferred to the audience, that you couldn?t do anything to help dancing, singing, laughing, and having a great time. Its the first time where I felt that the audience was as much a part of the show as the performers. I think that Angelo needed us to be having a good time in order to perform at that level. I still can?t figure out how he could be doing all of that on stage, and continue to sing perfectly, AND THEN do those handstand leg kicks with Dre for Jackass Brigade without collapsing from exhaustion. I know I sound like I'm crazy and overstating things a bit, and maybe I am, but I've never had so much fun and felt more accepted than at that concert. And I haven't even said anything about the music. The music was not only some of the best I've heard, but it was somehow perfectly loose and tight at the same time, with each player contributing equally to the atmosphere. I think that the sound was great, I could hear everyone well, but for the life of me I can't pick out any memorable solos and I have only a vague idea of the order of songs played. It's almost like the 2 hours collapsed into a moment in time and it's hard for me to recall exact events. I'm getting more and more confused as I write this actually. I'm going to try to write another review that makes sense after I sort out what happened in my head, if I can ever do that. Sorry guys.
aw man what a show,my first time seeing fishbone and definately not the last,i mean for a band to have played that many shows in one month and put in a performance like that is just surreal (j lo has a lot of catching up to do) ive never seen a band have that much fun on stage and having met angelo before hand just made it all the more beautiful i wouldve gone home happy then,i cant sing fishbones...
From what I remember, that was a wild performance. Met Angelo and John at the bar before the show. They agreed to take some photos and we chatted a bit. Very nice and funny guys as always...
By the time the band came on stage, everyboy seemed to be, hum... slightly drunk! So, like I said, that was a wild gig.It sounded very chaotic. Chaotic but... fun!
After the show, Joh...
