This week: March 2 -9

Some great global and local stuff in Paris this week.

Tues 2 March: The Woodentops @ La Maroquinerie. Respectable 80s Brit alternarockers. Fairly melodic stuff. Stopped touring in early 90s. Now back on the circuit. See video below.

Tues 2 March: The Obits @ Pt. Ephemere
Another indie rock band buzzing (yes, I've decided this is the daily overused word/root) about Brooklyn, and thus around the rest of the friggin planet. Lead singer Froberg was in other fairly well known indie outfits like Pitchfork and Drive Like Jehu. Lugubrious bass lines and twangy guitars harnessed into a garage punk effort that does not suck in the slightest. See video below.

Tues 2 March: Antlers @ Scopitone. Get tickets here.
Tues 2 March: Les Spurts @ La Cantine de Belleville (108 BD DE BELLEVILLE). Garage rock from Toulouse.

Wed 3 March: Broadcast 2000 @ La Fleche D'Or: British indie folk. Also have a good buzz. See video below.

Thur 4 March: The Soft Pack @ Nouveau Casino. A hot pop punk alterna group in the States right now (witnessed by the video above from the Letterman show). Very catchy. Get a ticket here.

Fri 5 March: Girls @ La Maroquinerie
Big buzz about this indie rock bunch from San Francisco. No surprise: Ultimate buzz bequeathers Pitchfork gave their 2009 debut album a 9.1/10 and rated it the 10th best album of that year. Influences range from Buddy Holly to the Beach Boys. It's sold out, but there's always somebody trying to sell a ticket at the show.

Fri 5 March: 69 Eyes @ Le Nouveau Casino. Helsinki Hard Horror Rockers, all about bloodsucking and stuff.

Sat. 6 March: Brendan Benson (U.S.) multi-instrumentalist American singer-songwriter, pal of Jack White, and member of the Raconteurs @ Le Nouveau Casino.

Sat. 6 March: Zombina and the skeletons + Louis Lingg and the Bombs + DJs @ Le Klub
