We arrived at the venue pretty early in the afternoon. With the later soundcheck I was looking forward to hanging out with all the Everybody Was In The French Resistance...Now touring party in Paris. All five of us.
Chalky the tour manager let us out the van and we waited for him to come back. Turns out the nearest parking for the venue was two train stops away. Thats why I've drawn a map of the surrounding area for the postcard. I've left the directions for parking in as a kind of ironic joke.
We were worried about our name upsetting people but the gig went really well.
Everybody Was In The French Resistance...Now have a tradition of coming on to the same piece of music every night. That piece of music is the Marseillaise, the French national anthem . As we were supporting in Paris this worked out particularly well for us as when the audience heard the music they all automatically got to their feet, ready for the show.
This painting is sold but if you were at any other of the Everybody Was In The French Resistance...Now shows and would like me to make you a postcard they come on two separate canvases cost £35 and I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
