Take-away shows” is a fantastic idea, and it’s brilliantly executed. A combination that warms the bosom indeed.

Basically you take high-quality cameras and sound equipment, find a band, and convince them to run away and play a mini-set in some randomly-chosen nearby urban locale. The results are simply fabulous.

For instance: Even if you don’t particularly enjoy The Arcade Fire, how can you resist the charm of an entire 8-piece band playing packed comfortably into a freight elevator. It’s really quite hard to miss the feeling.

There really is something for everybody.
