It's like treasure hunting. Look at their eyes, you'll see they're shy people trying to spot other shy people looking for them. Then simply join in if you like what you see.

yeah, i mean, it's something i've never done . . . but you guys are all making me feel a whole lot easier about the idea . . . and to be honest i'm actually looking forward to this now . . . i wasn't expecting such a positive response!

The loiter, observe, ponder then make a decision tactic sounds like a good'un, bertrand, thanks.

i think you should go alone and meet up with everyone down there prior to the show. i remember bertrand mentioning that he'd be at a bar called l'horloge on M° Porte de Pantin in the other vilette thread, which is right by the grand halle where SY are playing.

i certainly might do that, racehorse, if you guys don't mind of course!

oh, and there's another villette thread is there? sorry . . .didn't know that.
i'll get in there and have a look around then.

thanks!

Bertrand you are the king of kindness

Definitely agreed. I can subscribe every word you say.
Never forget the horloge and the gig atmosphere.
I was a stranger in Paris, no one of my friends is interested in fighting to have 2 holiday days for Sonic Youth...
I regret missing the jazz festival,
hope you guys will have a great time and enjoy this special gig

Not me, no. I went to this one though: 27 October 2005 - Paris, France @ Cite De La Musique

At first I thought that next month's one was going to be in the same venue, which would have been fantastic (best venue I've ever seen a full SY show in), but sadly not.

I'm suprised that the show hasn't already sold out, but maybe people are put off by the special guests. I certainly wouldn't want to risk going without a ticket - the official box office is here: Sonic Youth - Wednesday 29 August

The line up is:

Support
Han Bennink - drums
Peter Brötzmann - saxophone
- bass
- drums

Sonic Youth + friends
Thurston Moore - guitar
Kim Gordon - guitar, bass
Lee Ranaldo - guitar
Steve Shelley - drums
Mats Gustafsson - saxophone
Jean-Marc Montera - guitar
Michel Doneda - saxophone

wow.

hi there all . .. i'm gonna go ahead and get a ticket for this because i don't wanna miss the boat . . . . and talking of boats . . . who will be travelling via the dover port . . . and could travel costs be cut or shared by car travel etc . . . i am undecided whether to take my car or not . . but i'd be more than happy to offer a lift for some fuel cash if anyone wants to do that .. .

i'd totally understand if this was met with utter silence.

interesting. . .. . i'm thinking i might do the boat then train from calais . . which is the way i have travelled to paris before a few times. if i'm on my own i think this will be a more enjoyable way of going about it.

say, dyou have accomodation arranged? . .. know of any hostels in the vacinity????
