Published Nov 21, 2008If youve never seen La Blogotheques famed Take-Away Shows, youre really missing out. Where else can you see the Arcade Fire (pictured) live in a freight elevator, Architecture In Helsinki performing together from different rooms in an apartment, or Sufjan Stephens covering the Innocence Missions "Lakes of Canada on a serene rooftop?
For even more musical adventures, the series has partnered with Al Gores progressive TV network Current TV for an actual episodic TV series. The show premieres on December 9 with guests Fleet Foxes and Emily Jane White.
Of course, if youre working with basic cable, the shows will be unavailable in Canada. Earlier this month, the CBC announced that theyve partnered with Current TV to start work on a station and website for Current Canada, but the project wont be ready until late 2009. Fortunately, the hours of videos on the Take-Away Shows site are viewable everywhere.
