Backstage Video: Dancing With The (Unified Heart) Stars – 2012 Leonard Cohen Wembley Concert

Sublime Brit Charley Webb and Barcelona virtuoso Javier Mas spontaneously dancing to Moldovan Alex Bublitchi’s violin backstage at a Leonard Cohen concert – this is so cosmopolitan Cohenite-cool that the only possible enhancement would be the addition of Leonard Cohen himself cutting in (an event that, according to my calculations, would approach critical mass for charm and thus risk nuclear meltdown).

Posted Sept 9, 2012 by J.S. Carenza III with the caption: Javier Mas and Charley Webb have a quickspin around backstage.
