Going in June, would be good to see a band somewhere. Anyone have an recommendations of good venues/websites?
Saw Architecture in Helsinki w/ Yacht there last September - nice small venue
always finding myself going there whenever i'm in Paris, great venue. only if wasnt up that bloody hill !
Is very cool http://www.flechedor.fr/
best place in town and it's ALWAYS free. They tend to get a great act with two other randomers, but it's worth it.
with really bad sound, but it's free...
you can find listing for Paris. Not much yet in June as most small venues haven't announced anything yet.
My favourite venues are :
Le divan du monde
but gigs are quite rare.
Le point FMR, le Batofar ( for punk/hardcore ), le Nouveau Casino, la Boule Noire, have "indie" bands, but sound isn't too good.
La Maroquinerie and Le Trabendo have more known bands and quite good sound but are still not too big. After that you have bigger venues ( over 1 000 ) like la Cigale, Le Bataclan, L'Elysée Montmartre.
If you aren't afraid of reading french, you'll find most interesting gigs here :
are you come to see us at Mains D'Oeure on Friday? it is in your favourite venues list afterall ;-)
and the 2 bands that are announced aren't really for me...
let me know. and yeah it's because we're replacing someone else they've been a bit slow with the website I'll ask them to change it!
grrrreattt. Must be able to muster something out of this lot. Not afraid to read French, well, my mate's lady can. Being French and all.
