Live in the library 6: Mika Miko – Wild Bore

Live gigs in the library seems to be almost always been held by musicians who like to play soft and quiet.
Mika Miko, a punk rock band from Los Angeles, USA, like it hard and loud and they proved that on April 20th, 2008 in the Los Angeles Central Library.

I’m not really sure if this song is called “Wild Bore” or “Capricorinations”. Los Angeles punk rock librarians, can you help me? And if you find other nice clips of live gigs in libraries please tell me in the comments! All songs will be tagged with “live in the library“.

Update: Sorry, I embedded the wrong video clip…

Live in the library 5: No Age – Sleeper Hold

No Age call themselves a experimental / powerpop / punk band (at least on MySpace). On April 20th, 2008 they performed live at the Los Angeles Central Library.

Live in the library obviously doesn’t have to be nice and quiet.

Live in the library 4: Molly, Joho & Daddy – Mirador (by Efterklang)

Not really live in a library but at least in front of a library and organized by a library is this song. World’s famous Molly, Jojo & Daddy are performing a song called “Mirador”. It’s orginally by the Danish band Efterklang. I doubt that they can perform this song as intense as Molly, Joho & Daddy do. But you can check yourself at Efterklangs current tour through Europe.

Live in the library 2: Peter Morén – Take On Me

Bibliothekspop was an event in december 2009 in Stockholm. The public library presented some live gigs in their own building. One of those gigs was by Peter Morén, who is very popular in Sweden as a member of Peter, Bjorn and John. Here you can see him with his version of a song originally by another wellknown band from Scandinavia.

Thanks to Peter!

Live in the library 1: Thomas Leeb – Riddle

Last week I posted a video of Kristin Hersh playing live in the Burnley Library and I received several positive responses. That made me think of a weekly “live in the library posting” here at Infobib. If you find nice clips of live gigs in libraries please tell me in the comments! All songs will be tagged with “live in the library“.

Let’s kick off this little series with “Riddle” by Thomas Leeb, a really remarkable guitar player. If you listen to his song without seeing him performing, you could think that there’s a complete band.

(Thanks again to Frank!)

Kristin Hersh live in der Burnley Library

Musik über Bibliotheken hatten wir hier schon einige Male, Musik in Bibliotheken eher selten. Oder sogar nie? Ich habe auf die Schnelle zumindest nichts gefunden. Und falls das jetzt eine Gewohnheit werden sollte, wäre Kristin Hersh ein guter Anfang.

Live in der Burnley Library.

Besten Dank an Frank für den Hinweis!
