Black Keys at Le Pompon

Prior to their sold out show at the Bataclan, the Black Keys put on an impromptu party at Le Pompon, a gorgeous new hot spot in Paris  (which feels more like a NY bar than anything I have been to in Continental Europe). They worked the decks from 8pm – 2am, amidst a sweaty and [...]

The Parisians at Fleche d’Or

Caught the Parisians at the Fleche d’Or last night. They put on a great show. Reminded me of early MGMT. Also, loved the venue. It’s situated over train tracks way out in the 20th, and has some great spaces for smoking, lounging or catching a new act. The sounds system was pretty darn good too. [...]

Hotel du Nord

Found this great little restaurant by the Canal St. Martin. Love the vibe, the food, and the waiter’s wine reco was great (5 euro for an amazing red, sure beats a 10 euro beer  in the 6th any day!) It may just be my new favorite.
