Good Luck Seb, it looks fantastic. Maybe you'll consider taking the show on the road, and stopping in Toronto?

May you be heard! It would be amazing... Huge show to take entirely on the road, but the right venue can make it happen...

Big initiative, it's good to see.

I don't think they'll play all night long, starting from 6pm, may end around midnight or maybe a bit later...but still THE PLACE TO BE on 21st June in Paris 8)

Etienne -hey,
unfortunately we could only deal until Midnight -fete de la musique strict rules! And even so, it was quite the mission : the gaite's people had to ge meet the Parc people, then the "flora in the park's people, then the petanque people who were afraid that their playing fields would be ruined... Ain't easy to hold a dance in a historically-protected place, lemme tell ya !

OK petanque players aside, the authorities finally handed the official green light for the Fete de la Musique --which means : Blackboard Jungle meets Jah Observer, for free, outdoors, in the heart of Paris on June 21st! 6pm-midnight is all we could negociate.

Dance will be held in the Camille cheautemps squere, right in front of the venue... That's one down!

For those who will happen to be in Paris on Saturday: we're having a Unity Sounds meets BlackBoard Jungle dance (on Blackboard Jungle's full set), with an opener by Honest Jon's !

The venue seems to be saying it's best to pre-book tickets as we won't be able to accomodate 4,000 people this time, indoors, huh huh.

There should be an English version of that page when you click somewhere on top ot the page.
