The concept behind the show is simple: catch up with musicians passing through Paris (for the most part, amongst other major cities) and have them perform live… impromptu, on the streets, wherever they may be. There is something quite zen and calming about many of these performances. Take, for instance, the latest video, featuring Andrew Bird strolling leisurely along the stone streets of Paris with his guitar, attracting the attention of nary a traveler:
This performance from The Shins on a bright sunny day makes me feel warm and ready for spring. I love how they break out with Alone Again Or as they stroll to find a place on the Paris streets to perform.
