Come pogo and shoegaze! 20h-1h30, at La Feline, 6 Rue Victor Letalle, 75020 M: Menilmontant (See below for a sampler of the kind of gems they'll be serving up!)

In Search of old cajun, western swing, Rockabilly, R&B, Soul in Paris?

set.jpgYou asked for it. Le Grand Duc du Kansas asked Le Baron Samedi bar if, entre aristocrats, they would give him a tranquil Monday night so you could chill with friends and a drink (or shake your moneymaker) while actually hearing his dope honky tonk and R & B set. Le Baron delivered. Monday 24th October, from 8pm-midnight, you got it.

If you want to dance on a wednesday night, you can't beat this. These guys do great butt-shakin sets of early Rocknroll, R&B, and Soul. You'll hear your Little Richard, Carl Perkins, and Otis Redding, but also plenty of stuff you didn't know but will fall in love with. All on 45t records! Wednesday Oct. 26, 8pm-1h30am. La Feline bar, 6 Rue Victor Letalle, Metro Menilmontant.
