Gary Clark, Jr. @ New Morning, Paris - February 18th, 2013

A great set from this young man who is evidently the future of blues guitar. The playing and the singing are as raw and intense as the groove is relentless.

Wilko Johnson @ le Divan du Monde, Paris - February 5th, 2013

When an artist announces a farewell tour it's usually met with skepticism at best. The Who "retired" in 1982 and have embarked in hundreds of tours (and even a record) since. Ozzy had famously named his pseudo-retirement trek "No More Tours" in 1992 and he's still at it (and still a tit) twenty years later. KISS did the same around the turn of the century and Frank Sinatra, well Frank pretty much invented this scam didn't he?
