Often when people try to be original they fall flat and sometimes even appear ridiculous. Last night at the Ptit Bonheur la Chance, Tristan tried to be original and WAS. It was a wonderful moment, a high moment, of a very high open mic. As I said last week, Ollie’s open mic at this bar near the Panthéon in Paris has grown into a massive event, one of the best open mics in the city.
In fact, I’m starting to think if things continue this way there will not be enough room for it to continue in the confines of the tiny cave basement of the bar. But last night that all worked well with Tristan’s show where he sang an African song and handed out printed pages with the lyrics on them for the chorus so that the crowd could sing along. Boy did it ever work. Check out the video!
