Time to show that France is about more than berets, mime camp, and children drinking wine. This year’s festival has teamed up with Record Makers to celebrate their label’s 10 year anniversary. These guys know how to party, and with their catalog of slick techno disco-pimp grooves it’s a union that puts the “ménage à trios” back in “Ooh La La”. The festival drips signature Parisian style with a line-up showcasing the sounds of French sensuality, spirited revolution, dancey techno beats, wafty accordion, and laid back countryside drives.
Ooh La La runs from Sept. 30th-Oct 2nd taking place at a different venue each night in LA before moving on to San Francisco. It promises to be as much fun as spanking a maid with a leather feather duster while wearing nothing but a croissant and a smile.

Sept. 30th | The El Rey
Celebrating Record Makers 10 year Anniversary. The evening will be headlined by Sébastien Tellier, who I like to think of as the Zapp Brannigan of French Electro Pop- with a 70’s twist. It will also feature Acid Washed, Turzi, and a DJ set by Kavinsky, who according to the promo, “claims to be a zombie who died in 1986 in a fiery Ferrari accident only to return to make music”.
