Very excited for this movie. Directed by Joann Sfar, Gainsbourg (Vie héroïque) comes out in January 2010. Serge Gainsbourg remains compelling to this day because his music was innovative, his poetry and delivery were sensual and beautiful, and the women, Briggitte Bardot and Jane Birkin to name a few, were some of the most gorgeous to ever walk the planet. Eric Elmosnino plays Gainsbourg, Lucy Gordon plays Jane Birkin, and Laetitia Casta plays Briggitte Bardot.

Vampire Weekend

Beach House

The Very Best

Get your tickets early for this mini festival of sorts. Vampire WeekendBeach House, and The Very Best will all be playing at the beautiful outdoor venue, Starlight Theater on October 2. Each very capable of headling their own show, I expect these indie heavyweights to have some surprises for the audience. Below, “Warm Heart of Africa” by The Very Best, featuring Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig.

Like him or not, Kanye West is always doing something different. Here is a passionate and charismatic  Kanye debuting “Mama’s Boy” at the Facebook headquarters. Sans intricate stage and lighting, instrumentation, and finely-tuned production, Kanye’s voice, lyrics and presentation take center stage, and he does well in front of his audience. First was the enraged single “Power” , and now this…I’m  very excited for his new album, Good Ass Job, to (maybe) drop in September.
