La//kvlkd @ Le Baron, Paris

Monday Night is concert night at Le Baron. Some new artist present themselves in a small, one-hour concert with a following after-party. And all this for free.

La//kvlkd @ Le Baron

Yesterday, La//kvlkd had a small gig, and I quite enjoyed their performance. The band is French, but they sing in English. Their songs are somehow very relaxing, but go straight into your head.

Check it out yourself 🙂

P.S. If somebody knows how to pronounce their name, please let me know!

Sunday Tunes…

My most played songs du jour…Enjoy!

Jewrhythmics – Hava Nagila -> I can’t find the song on youtube, but short preview available on http://www.jewrhythmics.com/, full version on iTunes

P.S. Im shocked to see (and hear) that Gotye´s Somebody that I used to know followed me from Berlin to Paris…. Please make it stop!

Sunday Tunes…..

I just discovered this great French alternative pop band “General Elektriks”. Their album is just packed with good tunes! Today you can see them live in Paris in Nouveau Casino (109 Rue Oberkampf, 75011 Paris), though tickets are already sold out.

If you belong to the lucky ones who still got tickets, enjoy your night! For the others I picked some of my favorite tracks du jour…
