Point Ephemere (19me)

Dec. 1 Experimental Electro Felix Kübin + Gangpol und Mit + Plateau Repas

Dec.2 Rock The Thermals [+] This Portland, Oregon based band’s gritty post-pop-punk sound comes alive through their “get the fuck out while you can” lyrics. For all those ex-pats fleeing from the states, this is your concert.

Dec. 5 Projection suivie d'un spécial live Transhumance Nicolas Boone Transhumance visual arts. Free entry for those interested.

Dec. 6 French Hip Hop Teki Latex + Just Jack + Yes Boss Former member of French hip hop and twisted electronic band TTC, Teki Latex went solo and with his first single “Disco Dance with You.” If you’re into French Hip Hop, or just looking to dance, Tiki’s new retro sound is sure to be an entertainment at the least.

Dec. 8 Noise Aids Wolf This “noisy and discordant” punk band from Montreal with improv tendencies claims to have no shame. Describing their sound as a squid eating dough in a polyethylene bag, they are part of the current effervescence of Canadian experimental rock.

Dec 10 Goûter d’écoute de Noël Arte Radio Stories of family, toys of madness, and a light feast for the ears when presents a line up of musical creations and documentaries. Includes Le Partage, a film by Mathilde Guermonprez of the story of ten brothers and sisters who reunite to divide their parents’ belongings.

Dec. 12 Vaudou jazz Adjabel + invités (Fr / Haïti) [+] The Afrobeat of Fela Kuti, the music-Root of Atissou Loko opens a new chapter in the history of Adjabel. A master of the ancestral drums is surrounded by remarkable musicians, Peter Corser on saxophone, clarinet and lambis, Rico Kerridge on guitar, Gillian Mombo with the second drum, and Scott Taylor with a guest appearance on accordion. A mixture of culture voodoo, afro-rates/rhythms, and hypnotic dancing. Rare and rich “like a black pearl,” as Ephémère’s site says.

The Rooooo Christmas Festival- Here’s Point Ephémere’s Christmas present to you in the form of a three night soirée. Choose from the legendary Red Krayola, Lee Ranaldo, or the still youthful Magik Markers

Dec. 13 Rock The Red Krayola + Turzi . The psychedelic, avant-garde rock band from Houston, Texas, formed by art students at the University of St. Thomas in 1966 is no stranger to negative reviews. But nonetheless, they are still alive and rocking with their noise rock, psychedelia and occasionally folk/country songs and instrumentals in a DIY-punk fashion, which says something.

Dec. 14 Rock Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth)+ Two Dollar Guitar with Chris Brokaw + Awesome Color A favorite of Point Ephémère with a solo opening performance from Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth.

Dec. 18 Rock Jackie O Motherfucker + Magik Markers The last of the three night Christmas Festival features Jackie O Motherfucker’s post-rock, free-jazz or psychedelic folk. The American trio Magik Markers’ improvised rock'n'roll was born along side Sonic Youth last summer in the states.

Dec. 19 “Unclassifiable” Klezmer groove Ozone & Marc Ducret + Zakarya Ozone invites Marc Ducret and circumvents guitar, rock'n'roll, and jazz. Difficult to classify Zakarya’s jazz, waltz, trash, Balkan rock style, but there goes.

Dec. 20 Jazz–slam Ascenseur + Print & D’ de Kabal Slam n’Jazz contest.

Dec. 21 Panico + Motormark + Soffy O + Fox n’wolf Typical South American Garage Punk. Lead singer Eduardo of Panico is a “hippie-Latin version of Joey Ramon.” The group takes a break from recording a new album to come to Ephémère.

Dec. 22 Soirée Dub Excursion party I Electro fans, get in one last soirée before going home for the holidays. Put on by the electro label dub. Live guests include Thierry Arnold, Rondo, Weeding Dub, and Molecule.
