The French techno producer extraordinaire Gesaffelstein has been touring North America for the past month and enjoying excellent reviews in the process. Last Friday he was scheduled to play in San Francisco when the horrific terrorist attacks occurred in Paris which left at least 129 dead, and many more wounded.
Gesaffelstein is usually a very private artist who doesn't have a meaningful social media presence, and rarely gives any interviews. The French producer created an emotional tribute by putting up the French flag on the video screens while playing La Marseillaise, and even lead the crowd in a moment of silence. Hearing the crowd spontaneously chant "Vive La France" must been an emotional experience for all that night at the 1015 Folsom. Check out the videos below:
