  • 2007/08/02 - concert Christophe Godin - "Zappanale Festival"

Christophe Godin played a solo set on Thursday evening at the KampTheater, in Bad Doberan, Germany.

The first 'real' concert of the evening.

He performed solo, standing on a platform of a truck, on the street, accompanied by a backing tape (cdr). During the gig, his amplifier fell over, but Christophe, who hadn't noticed at first, just kept on playing while a couple of roadies put everything up again. Fun.

This remarkable little incident, however, added a little surprise factor to the concert. Before each song, Christophe would ask the sound-guy to start a certain backing-track on the cdr. The little paper with the setlist and cdr-track-numbers had been lying on the amplifier...
As the amplifier had fallen down, this lead sheet was lost, so Christophe had to pick backing-track numbers by choice, resulting in an improvised choice of songs.

The weather wasn't too good that night and it even started raining again near the end of the concert. Godin's concert, however, was fabulous.

Incredible and fabulous.
