THE BLACK STOUT: Two live shows from Paris – July 2011/February 2012

In 2010, Parisian punks The Black Stout released their debut EP. The self-financed release was one of that year’s best DIY punk releases, really capturing the spirit of the band’s influences while mixing it with a hefty dose of talent. Their second release – the eight song vinyl ‘A Pint of Riot’ – branched out a little farther, incorporating a few more punk ‘n’ roll elements. While not as instant, that second release proved this band on the rise still weren’t short of attitude.

Since those outside France have not had the opportunity to catch The Black Stout live (yet), below are two full length shows for you to enjoy. While the band may not appear as visually energetic as some, these clips more than capture the musical spirit of their two releases to date.

Enjoy. [Please note: the second clip features strobey lighting]

[Both EPs can be purchased from The Black Stout’s Bandcamp page.]
