Girls just wanna have fun

Nicole Canet Galerie has a great expo right now celebrating nightime Paris with an emphasis on the gay bals in Belleville, Montmartre and Pigalle. This photo is from "Le Monocle" in Monparnasse, 1930.

Je suis tres fan de Adanowsky

I am mad about Adanowsky.

He's playing at La Maroquinerie - promising "des invités …des surprises …de la sueur …. et de l’Amour …. !"

Sadly I'll have left town until early January and so won't make it. Please go for me if you are lucky enough to be able to make it. You can check out the sounds on his MySpace, his act is kind of hard to describe but it's original - songs/chansons in both French and Spanish. I'm in love with his whole aesthetic; see the great photography on his site.

From MySpace:
Adan Jodorwskys roots, as well as his surreal style, are based in the South American continent. Add this to a cosmopolitan education, and the result is a brilliant musician who is receptive to a wide range of influences. Surrounded by a range of talented artists such as Giovanni Mirabassi, Frank Vaillant, Laurent Griffon, Steve Arguelles, Jérôme Goldet, John Handelsman and Yarol Poupaud since 2024, Adanowsky has earned the reputation of being one of the craziest performers around. You could even say that he can now be compared to his heroes, men such as Wilson Pickett and Sammy Davis Jr.

What else could we expect from the son of the director of "El Topo" (1970), the great Chilean film maker Alexandro Jodorowsky, alive and well and reading Tarot in Paris (as well as practising as a therapist).
