Comments : And now for something exotic : Thee Silver Mt Zion in Paris. I now remember why I didn't like seeing shows in Paris much : the very annoying, uptight, arty farty, poser audience. Despite this annoyance and the very "welcoming" full-body pat down at the entrance, it was a really nice evening. I honestly did not know what to expect from the current line-up of ASMZ, (which is actually the same one as ATPNY 2 years ago). The setlist featured only songs from the last coupe of albums, peppered with a few rants by Efrim wishing they were Teenage Jesus & The Jerks. A very good 2 hours show.
