Charlotte Gainsbourg performed at The Crocodile April 14th, 2010. This marks my first gig for Back Beat Seattle, which didn’t hit off with a bang for various reasons that need not be explained.
I wasn’t too familiar with Miss. Gainsbourg’s and had only heard of some of her material on KEXP. I am very much a fan of her father (the late Serge Gainsbourg) though.
The show opened with an indy band called “AM” whom i missed most of the set due to a conflict with credentials but what I had heard when i did gain access i did enjoy. The second act was “Jogger” Whom I was really diggin’. They were a mix of Royksopp meets Aphex Twin with a hint of Indie. Lastly, Charlotte took stage and I must say, she was a breath of fresh air. She fed off the packed audience at “The Crocodile” whom were into her set. Overall, it was a great show and it introduced me to a new sound.
