Video: 2009 Colmar Hijinks – Leonard Cohen & Dino Play The Hat Game


As evidenced by Video & Photo: Fans Equip Leonard Cohen To Step Into The Ring And Examine Every Inch Of You – Colmar 2009, the Aug 16, 2009 Leonard Cohen Colmar concert was a delight-filled show. So, it’s in keeping that, during “Ain’t No Cure For Love” at that same Colmar show, Leonard Cohen and Dino Soldo indulged in a little grab-hat. An animated gif of the sequence is shown above. The original video, shot by Christine Geyer, automatically begins at 1:40, just before the game starts.

Don’t you wish these guys could loosen up?
