Green Day in Paris – Mathilde Oremus Photographs

Green Day in Paris - Photograph by Mathilde Oremus

When I went to Berkeley to see Pinhead Gunpowder [VIDEO] [AUDIO] [BLOGPOST] and the Mystic Knights of the Cobra back in February, I met Marjorie Beaugad at 924 Gilman’s Pinhead Gunpowder show. Marjorie was from Paris, and she was just finishing up a year of study in San Francisco. She had seen some excellent music over her year at school in San Francisco, and also attended Green Day’s small venue show last year at the Trabendo on May 12th, 2009 in Paris. She even sang “Longview” with them.

Soon after the Pinhead Gunpowder show, Marjorie’s year in San Francisco was over, and she moved back home to Paris, a beautiful, if complicated, city. She and her friend, Mathilde Oremus, attended this past June’s Paris gig at Parc des Princes stadium. Mathilde shot some excellent views, and I asked her if I could highlight images here. Mathilde’s full set of 168 photographs may be found on her Facebook page.

Mathilde photographed all three bands that appeared at Parc des Princes: Billy Talent, Paramore, and of course, Green Day. She took some especially nice photographs of Mike, as well as photos of Billie Joe, Tre, and fans, including the Aussies!
