Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Rock en Seine, 24 August 2013

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club were a band I was happy enough to see at Harvest, but wasn't too fussed about seeing for a headline show. At least until I had a listen to this very impressive set from just a couple of months back. There is an initial problem with the sound that I've tried to fix as much as I can, but once it's past this sounds phenomenal. Bands like this tend to have a 'sound' and things can get pretty boring, but these guys do a good job of mixing things up with songs that clearly fit within their style, but also show they can stretch beyond regurgitating variations on a theme.

There seems to be a fanbase for the band, given their show at Billboard was upgraded to the Palace within a few hours. Unfortunately I (and probably others) are going to be forced to miss this because it clashes with Neutral Milk Hotel - if anyone wants a ticket I've got one going for $50, send me an email.
