surprise show

Posted in Uncategorized by stefanie on March 3, 2011

We got to see the Civil Wars play a pop-up show on the Pont des Arts today!  They’ve been in Paris all week, hanging out with their entourage and shooting music videos, and for their last day here they announced they’d be playing 1 song at 1pm overlooking the Seine River and the Ile de la Cité.

Turns out, they played about 7 and then spent a while hanging out with the handful of (mostly) americans that showed up to listen.  I was really impressed with hearing them live, and they had a friendliness and spontaneity that took me back to our Nashville days…


If you haven’t heard their debut album, here’s one of my favorites.
