THIS TUESDAY @ LE CLUB DING-A-LING...
FREE HOT CREPES ALL NIGHT!!! Seriously!!!!!
The 1st Annual SERGE GAINSBOURG and '60s FRENCH POP TRIBUTE NIGHT!
If you're not hip to the groovy sounds of SERGE GAINSBOURG and all the
incredible '60s YE YE girl-pop he helped to elevate to a high art
form, then this evening will change your life!!! Even if you're well
steeped in the genre, chances are you haven't seen either of the
incredibly rare SERGE GAINSBOURG film / Television projects that we'll
be showing in their entirety -- namely the melancholy romantic comedy
he made for French television in the late '60s,
starring ANNA KARINA, the hottie he was schtupping in between JANE
BIRKIN and BRIDGETTE BARDOT (poor guy!). We've also gotten a hold of a
copy of the equally rare and ultra-kewl
a film about one of my favorite subjects... Both of these films are
tough enough to find in France, but nearly impossible to get a hold of
here, in the notoriously Francophobic USA!!
Plus, as if that's not enough, we've got hours of GAINSBOURG related
French Television Performances, Music Videos, Scopitones, film clips
and fashion videos featuring the likes of FRANCE GALL, JANE BIRKIN,
CLEO, FRANCOISE HARDY, LIO, PIERRE CARDIN, COUREGGES, DANI, etc... BUT
WAIT -- THERE'S MORE... we also have somehow acquired William Klein's
"MISTER FREEDOM" (featuring GAINSBOURG), and parts of Klein's rarely
seen "WHO ARE YOU, POLLY MAGOO?" and "MODE IN FRANCE".
You don't want to miss this unique opportunity to see all of this
insanely rare footage!!!
Spinning beaucoups of danceable French favorites we have our own MC /
audio miscreant DON BOLLES, DJ LEGS LEBROCK, PRICKLE, QUINN, DJ Mor
Elian and DJ/VJ "MIKIE"...
Serving up the continental suds will be NO-RA and her zany sidekick, MINGY...
So come on down, have some cake, and lose your head to the groovy
sights and sounds of the YE YE revolution! YE YE YE!!!!
It's all happening...
