Stop what you are doing and watch this stream of RIDE playing live in Paris right now

Fridays are good. Mostly because it’s the last day of the week. Also because here are Happy we do falafel Fridays, and falafels rule. But it’s also the day that Pitchfork post live streams of concerts they’ve recorded, always with excellent bands.

The other week we were treated to a video of Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett playing on a cliff top in Malibu. Today they’re streaming a video of shoegaze heroes RIDE playing at Pitchfork Music Festival Paris 2017.

We spoke to Mark Gardener from RIDE for issue #5 Happy Mag, which was a dream come true for one of us… check it out here. And watch RIDE tearing it up at Pitchfork Festival below.
