Ok this site of the day is nothing like taxi cab confessions.  It is better especially if you like more music and less drama.  The site is called Black Cab Sessions.  The site is based out of London, England and they film music performances inside the iconic London Black Cab. They have over 30 performances from a variety of artists including Lykke Li, Killa Kela, The Futureheads, Spoon, Okkervil River, The Kooks, Lightspeed Champion, and others.

It was conceived as tool to help gig promoter Hidden Fruit. As you can see, it expanded beyond that to provide some great music in a very "intimate setting".

Here are some samples. You can check out more at their site or their youtube channel
