April/May calendar



Next week the excellent Camera Obscura twee their way to the Maroquinerie for the Inrocks Indie Club show. Get your tickets here now. It will sell out. Hey, Camera Obscura girl, will you go with me?

April 11: Handsome Furs at La Maroquinerie

For those of you with a penchant for 80s American punk rock, don't miss the hugely important Agent Orange at Pena Festayre, Sunday April 12. Google it.

The Whitest Boy Alive, April 15, Maroquinerie. Features Erland Oye of Kings of Convenience minor fame. Of course this guy's Norwegian and has racial guilt, as he should. Erland has taken his guilt and re-located to the capital of Teutonic hipness, Berlin--mais bien sur. Naw, they're good.

April 18: Sunset Rubdown at La Maroquinerie

More for you indie-lovers with a punk side: NOFX, April 23, Bataclan.

April 23: The Noisettes at La Boule Noire

Bonnie Prince Billy (fabulous Will Oldham formerly of Palace): April 24, la Cigale.

Also get tickets for Andrew Bird at La Cigale April 27. Whoops just checked and it's sold out. Try putting an announcement on Craig's list Paris. If you can read French, check Les Inrocks forum. People announce tickets there, too. Or just show up. People always have tickets to sell.

yeah yeah yeahs, April 30 at Bataclan (whoops, also sold out, but I warned you before)
 
May 1: Djay Indie Eclectique (DIE) at Le Baron Samedi for a special tribute to the Workers of the World on International Labor Day/May Day. Plus a lot of soul and garage gems.

Yo La Tengo, June 4, Alhambra.

I'm out of town next week. Then I've got a few dj gigs in May, starting May 1, International Labor Day, at the relatively new and fabulous Le Baron Samedi on Rue des Goncourts, just a stoner's throw from Metro Goncourt. Don't miss all my mod and soul garage gems for this night (think Etta James, Wanda Jackson, The Sonics, Detroit Cobras, Bellrays) plus random songs about work.

Okay, so that's all for awhile. I'm not putting as much into this these days, since I'm writing for Popmatters.com and others, and especially since you over 330 ungrateful fuckers never comment!!! (Okay a couple of you have: thanks!)
Salut,
JH

triple woops, PJ Harvey's sold out too. boohoohoo.
I just got my tix for the first night of Villette Sonique (I don't think I have listened to Jesus Lizard since I was about 15) and Yo la Tengo at the Alhambra (6/4).

Right you are! Can't forget Yo la Tengo. Thanks, steckarrr!
And I need to get Villette Sonique up there. Maybe you want to do it? Feel free to write about any of these upcoming gigs.
