13th Aug 2021: Four Acoustic Songs from Bruxelles

On FRIDAY, 13TH AUGUST at 20H CET (19h ireland, for example), we will continue the virtual Floatinghome tour through the ages with a short acoustic concert in Bruxelles at about the time of our album, “le grand discours” (available on CD and download in our bandcamp shop).

It was the time when Augi, Fabrice and i played some choons opening the evening for Villagers in the beautiful Botanique venue 🙂

I hold fond memories of our shows there, arriving and walking through the glass house running the length of the venue: don’t push the trolly into the fish pond; navigate around the rotonde – i’ve seen some of my favorite shows in there and played some too – Wallis Bird, Le Yeti, …, Floatinghome have not yet played on that stage; garden running below rounded steps on the left – many hours sat on those steps listening to soundchecks with a book; or contemplating the statues – very odd statues of historical or mythological situations in that garden, overlooked by a terrace of five buildings, depicting five different eras of Bruxelles’ architectural mishmash (throw in the botanique and you’ve got six!); push on past the bar – smell of dinner steaming out; ’round the corner – drop the merch – and through the double doors into the dark of the Orangerie – welcome – the evening may begin!

The concert will appear at the link on the other side of this picture on friday evening.
