Thanks to all who made it out for le Grand Duc's guest gig last wednesday with the virtuosic DJ SF Sorrow @ La Mecanique Ondulatoire (a WEEKLY show for SF Sorrow), and for LGDK's birthday party @ la Feline thursday. Both were a blast.

Dec. 6, Sunday: Devendra Banhart: Beloved American contemporary singer-songwriter:



Dec. 7, Monday: The legendary Sonics at Le Trabendo. I know they're old. But the word on the net is that you are an idiot if you miss this. They've still got it in 'em . The grandfathers of punked out rocknroll. Dirty, loud, swingin'. Here they are playing one year ago:


Dec. 7, Monday: The Melvins bring their enduring rock noise to LE GLAZART.

Dec. 9, Wednesday @ l'Alhambra Theatre: Tortoise. Post-rock poster kids. If that's your thing, well, then go nuts!

December 14, Monday: Lily Wood and the Prick @ Pt. Ephemere. The name sounds promising, no?

Dec. 17, Thursday: Grand Duc du Kansas's "Every other Thursday" @ La Feline, with special guest SF Sorrow and his big box of vintage RnR 45's. The wild honky tonk, hellbilly, soul, garage, classic punk and blues punk party you know and love.

December 17, Thursday: Black Heart Procession @ Mains d'Oeuvres, Metro St. Ouen. If you like that low-fi, dark, inventive acoustic, slightly twangy stuff like Handsome Family. Get your fix! This is top notch for the genre. (Thanks to Steckarr for the tip)
