Zone Libre? WTF?

Yesterday I went to see Shellac at the Bataclan. But first I had to endure the opening act: Zone Libre.

I won’t comment on their music, but still… I mean even if your music is instrumental, you are allowed to set up a microphone to say Hello, Thank You and Good Bye. And if you are a rock star (and Serge Teyssot-Gay is, as the former guitarist of Noir Desir, undoubtably one in France) the irony of a "Fuck Rock Stars" T-shirt is totally lost, unless it’s meant be an invitation for groupies…

In case you were wondering, Shellac were great, and amazingly loud…

And I don’t think 22 € for a show at the Bataclan is expensive (people who were there will understand the sense of this remark)
