My parents have been here since Thursday, and in addition to being exhausting (a nasty toothache didn’t help), they’ve made sure I’ve had entirely too much grappa. So this will be a sort of abbreviated, somewhat tipsy post.
I hope you find something you enjoy in it, though.
A couple years ago, I was looking up Feist when I came across something really weird: a video of Feist playing in the back of a London taxi. No, you read that right: in the back of a taxi. And I found it incredibly charming.
It turns out that this is a thing.
It’s called Black Cab Sessions, and there are tons of them. Sometimes they work:
Sometimes they don’t:
Sometimes they make me like artists I had previously disliked:
Sometimes the artists don’t seem to know what to make of it:
Sometimes the artists make me think they should always play in cabs:
Sometimes they’re not particularly good, but fun anyway:
Sometimes I think, “Man, I’ve been in that cab!”
Sometimes, who the hell was that? More, please.
Sometimes… wait, was that Beyonce’s sister?
But always entertaining. I don’t think I’ve regretted watching one yet, and I’ve probably watched them all. So check them out, and let me know if you find any you like.
