Live music videos from Le Cargo
May 13, 2010 3:16 PM   Subscribe

French website Le Cargo has a long-running series of live performance videos by alternative musicians, all of which can be watched on their YouTube channel. Here are a few that I liked: Erin McKeown - Put the Fun Back in the Funeral, Kings of Convenience - Mrs. Cold, Soltero - I'll Be a Writer, The Concretes - Military Madness, My Brightest Diamond - Be My Husband, Jose Gonzalez - The Nest, Jaymay - Lonely Men Build Lonely Cities, Vic Chestnutt - Supernatural, Metric - Gimme Sympathy, Françoiz Breut - Les jeunes pousses, Bowerbirds - Moonshiner, Joseph Arthur - A Smile That Explodes, Lambchop - You're a Big Girl Now, Alela Diane - The Rifle, Ane Brun - The Puzzle, Matt Elliott - Broken Bones and Fredo Viola - Sad Song. There are roughly 600 more videos.

Heh, I forgot to link to Le Cargo itself. Oh, and most of the videos are also on Dailymotion.

This is only tangentially related, but here's something weird, Soltero's Communist Love Song accompanying a compilation of Gomer Pyle clips that imply a love between Pyle and his sergeant.

This is awesome - especially considering that I'm at the point in rehearsing for an upcoming concert where I'm rehearsing in my head even when I'm not at rehearsal. My sanity! Saved by MetaFilter and Youtube!
