Three weeks into the tour with Damien Saez. We had some really good shows already, the crowds have been very generous, and we’re starting to find a good blend of songs and a good order. In the end, the show is closer to classic Saez than originally intended, with more acoustic and more rock songs, and less of the groove based material of his latest album, “Miami”. It’s cool to try out new directions, but it’s important to respect the core of what Damien’s work is about. So in a show where I initially thought I’d be playing a lot of synths, I’ve ended up playing accordion half of the time. It’s a long tradition in the family, though, my grandmother plays accordion, so I am enjoying it. Tonight we play the old slaughterhouse of Lyon, La Halle Tony Garnier.
