Got this ticket on a bit of a whim and almost didn’t go after a hard day and rubbish weather but very glad I did.
FatAM are very French – play French pop with a strong North African influence – who would have guessed from the name? You couldn’t mistake them for Brits/Americans – even before they did a couple of little mini Shadows steps/2 man can-cans. A great party night. Full of joie de vivre. As someone who gets quite engaged with song lyrics (and only has CSE French) the fact that they were in French didn’t really matter. Partie!Partie! Partie!
Europeans. Those I could see were a much better M:F ratio and a much nicer atmosphere than other gigs recently.
It made me think..
