It was the Fête de la Musique, and the neighborhood already resounded with the sounds of young drummers born after "Nevermind" was released, jazz bands livening up little squares, and terraces with sound systems on maximum volume. Still, Vandaveer was there to tangle with the audience. The crowd asked for an encore at the very end of his show, after he played "Roman Candle", that little tune that lodges itself in your brain.
