This past Thursday (October 6, 2011), I had a chance to catch Chateau Marmont & Revolver at The Prophet Bar in Dallas, TX as part of their “Voulez-Vous?” tour. So glad I went as both of these French bands put on an excellent show. I managed to take a bit of video for each band. It’s only from my mobile phone, so the quality is lower. Also, I couldn’t help but groove out to the music, so sorry for the shaky cam, heh, heh. 😉 I have also included a few snap shots, again the quality is to be desired, but at least some of the moments of this enjoyable experience were captured.
Revolver, who played first, is a delightful pop de chambre (chamber pop) band. Their music has been described as a bridge between pop and classical music or even the Renaissance or the Baroque and influence everything from Beatles to Bach, from Benjamin Britten to Elliot Smith.
Chateau Marmont was up next. This Space Pop/Rock band mesmerizes with its futuristic, airy, and rich tunes. Not too long ago, I posted Chateau Marmont’s video “Solar Apex” along with some other “outer-space” music videos for those interested in seeing more space inspired videos and music. Space. The Final Frontier. A Music Video Tribute.

I’d like to thank all of these gentleman again. Not only did they put on a great show, but they were very amicable to the audience. It was great to meet them all and to see them perform live. They still have some tour dates remaining and I suggest you check them out if they are near you.
