I got lazy and tweeted rather than blogged about this yesterday, but if you read this in time check out Canadian artist Gonzales and his attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for longest concert by a solo artist. He's probably most known for collaborating with Feist on Let it Die and The Reminder. Broadcasting live from Paris, he's currently 22.5 hours into his epic 27 hour gig. I've been tuning in and out periodically from yesterday evening, the middle of the night, this morning, to now and it's incredible he's been playing the ENTIRE TIME. I think he's allowed a 15 minute break every 3 hours, but other than that he's just been playing piano like a madman. Lots of covers!

Gonzales' World's Longest Concert

[EDIT: haha, he's been playing the last few songs blindfolded and they just unveiled a portrait someone had painted of him while he played!]
