1/30, New Years Eve, and a few upcoming garagepunk shows



Tonight, plus New Years Eve and Near Future....

  • Wed., Dec. 30
  • The Fabulous SF Sorrow Record Show every wednesday 45rpm Record Show @ La Mecanique Ondulatoire. Want to know the noisy roots of Sonic Youth, Young'uns? The legacy of which the Black Keys are a part? Do some time travel with SF Sorrow and his guests and you'll be graduating from the academy of Rock-Soul-and-Punk. But then there are plenty of graduates already out there who are used to swinging and swooning every wednesday for this blessed ritual. Tonight, another great Paris dj, Topper Harley, will be sharing the turntables.
    E.g. of the pearls you behold at a SF Sorrow gig:
The big rock-soul New Years eve offerings:
Note: The great Mecanique Ondulatoire will be closed for New Years.
I recommend making a tour of these bars, since these gigs run until dawn!!!

Le Baron Samedi, 12 Rue des Goncourts, 75011: If you like the morsel above, then you're in luck because dj SF Sorrow spins New Years Eve (actually at midnight, going all night) at BS with DJ Baldo (another excellent Paris dj who favors garage). The BS is a good mid-sized bar for lovers of soul, blues, and garage. An excellent way to spend your New Years.

La Feline, 6 Rue Victor Letalle, 75020. Yours truly le Grand Duc du Kansas (D.I.E.) shares the turntables with the inimitable Pat for an uproariously awesome New Years full of whiskey shots, free kisses, and dancing on the bar! Expect the best of rockabilly, soul, classic punk, hard rock, surf, power pop, and New Wave. Until Dawn!!!
