This site (http://www.blogotheque.net/takeawayshows/) posts video footage of (mostly Indie) bands performing in public environments (street corners, parks, elevators) for the camera and whomever may happen to be walking by.

Says the site’s founder, “[The films are] sort of a marriage between music and cinema, between documentary and raw capture, they try to give rhythm to images and to color music, they are the event as well as a testimony of the event.”

Not only is the concept original and a fantastic use of the medium, it’s delivers a true independent music experience, free of marketing, packaging, and other music industry trappings. It provides an unfiltered view of the musicians and their music, disseminated directly to their fans through the website.

Additionally, the site design is arresting yet simple, providing a distinctive backdrop to the performances themselves.
