The Take-Away Shows over at La Blogotheque is one of the best music video websites you can visit if you haven't done so already. The performances appear really stripped down, and that creates a new level of beauty and intimacy if you're familar with the source material. Even if you're not familar with the songs or artists, you can still appreciate these videos.
I really like the videos shot in Paris because there always seem to be something unexpected that adds a unique quality to the perfomance. Check out Arcade Fire in an elevator or the kids jamming to Menomena. Plus, I've always wanted to visit Paris anyway and these videos just re-enforce my urge to go.
