No studio album beats a good live performance!

On the 15th of July I went to see Jamie Lidell perform @ the 5 days off festivall in Amsterdam. I was familiar with Jamie lidell as I had severall of his albums on heavy rotation on my Ipod, but I can assure you that seeing him perform live, it's a whole different story.

The guys at 5 days off asked Jamie to do something different for his performance, so they set up the performance as one big jam session where every band member would improvise their songs. If you ever have the chance to see him live, I suggest that you go do it, as it sounds better than the album.

5 Days off was developed as a spin-off of the 10 days off festival in Gent and was the first multi-day indoor dance event in the Netherlands.
