Booked really late, good erm, seats, had gone.
Hopefully there won't be any pillar to block the view, so it won't be that bad.
My credit card coughed blood.

I guess the advantage of being seated is that you can put your beer at your feet if you wanna clap along in time with the music. Although I don't think they sell beer at the PdC...

Actually the one and only time I went there (my mum had brought us tickets to see Lou Reed) there were hostesses passing through the aisles selling ice cream cones. Good times ahead.

I just made a huge mistake when booking my tickets. I entered my Irish address as what I thought was the section for the billing address but ticked the box for postage in France. the order was confirmed but I haven't paid for postage to Ireland. My French isn't great so I'm finding it hard to find what to do on on the site. does anyone have the patience to help me?

I just need to get the address changed on the order but there seems to be no way to change anything. on the contact us tab there is this piece of writing.

Nos serveurs ont filtré de nombreux emails ces derniers temps. Nous avons modifié les paramètres pour autoriser un plus grand nombre de messages. Si vous vous étonnez de ne pas avoir reçu de réponse de notre part merci de nous contacter à nouveau. Nous vous prions de nous excuser pour les éventuels courriers restés sans réponse.

I don't know if this says they can't reply to me or what. hopefully there is some way of changing the order.

It says that "our servers have skimmed numerous emails lately. We have modified our parameters to authorize more messages to go through. If you're surprised not to have received any answer from us, thanks for contacting us again. We apologize for any unanswered mail you might have sent."

Let us know which site you ordered the ticket from if you're still in the dark - though I won't be up to help you until next week.

Apparently there was a SY interview in this month's Rock'n'Folk, a decent-in-the-70's-turned-shit-in-the-00's french music magazine. One of the questions, apparently, went along the lines of, 'why are you playing your Paris gig at the Palais des Congrès?'.

Anyone read this interview? I'm curious to know what their answer is...

Maybe the price and the seats are preparing everyone for a 3 hour performance by the band !!!


The acoustics look like they'll be great in there.

Well you'd hope so, given the price of the tickets, but I don't expect it will be anywhere near as loud as your average SY concert. In France, a lot of places like these limit sound levels to around 100 dB.

I guess if they were going to do a performance similar to those on the Good Bye 20th Century dates, seats would be OK, acceptable... So c'mon SY, why the Palais des Congrès? What have you got in mind?

Hopefully something which befits the venue, otherwise the question is more like 'what were you thinking?...'

where is the French spirit of revolution? just because there are seats must you sit? I've seen people sit on the floor-why not stand in your seats?

Man, my girlfriend bought me this magazine, the interview is pointless, and the journalist doesn't ask this question.
Even worse, there's a article just after the interview, where the "journalist" bullshits about the band ("they're old", "they 've never made a good song", "they've never made anything new", "it's just shitty open tuning", "Thurston is a bad guitarist", "La jeunesse sonique ? Sonique ta mère oui..." [I don't want to translate this shit], bla bla bla).
Don't buy/steal it.

OK, I get the picture... Hardly surprising given the shitty nature of the magazine in the first place. Typical music journalism, slamming a band instead of trying to write some constructive criticism one way or the other. I guess now that SY are 'mainstream', it's time to slam them in order to look cool.

Still intrigued by the choice of venue. Sorry to go on about to go on about it, but I just feel I can't let it go. And I couldn't bring myself to order tickets for the gig, mainly because of the venue.

"It's just shitty open tuning", haha that's really funny. Classic ignorance, worthy of 'when I was 5 my paintings were just as good as Picasso's'...

And "Sonique ta mère"... Well that's just beyond lazy.

Yeah, I'll be there. Gotta come all the way from Helsinki. My girlfriend is gonna be on exchange in Paris and I was going to visit her anyway at the time so it's perfect for my schedule. It's my first SY gig and first time in Paris and all so I'm pretty psyched. The venue does seem crappy, though. I don't want to sit down and roll my thumbs on a Sonic Youth gig!
