PLU Magazine n°3 Launch Party

September 26, 2015 @ 3:00 pm

Back for the 3rd edition of our annual Paris Lit Up Magazine Launch Party, we’re bringing you a whole day – and a long night – of poetry, art, music, dance, food and fun! Entry is FREE!

Hosted at Paris’ premier alternative space La Petite Maison and in collaboration with the global event 100 Thousand Poets for Change, we’ll be featuring the French post-rock group Aymé along with some barebones rhythm & blues by The Bowling Team and the Celtic harper, singer, songwriter and poet Ken Parsons. With live painting by international artists María Argüelles, Alison Koehler and 36.15, readings and performances by 50+ local and international poets and writers, musicians and dancers, wholesome food and drinks and a new magazine, this will be a night to remember.

Doors open at 15h for a whole day of celebrations with tapas, music, poetry, artisanal beer and organic wine available all day. And, of course, we’ll be unveiling the new issue of Paris Lit Up Magazine n°3 at 20h with concerts following late into the evening.

La Petite Maison – 8 rue Cavaignac, 75011 Paris
La Petite Maison is a grassroots social center that was squatted in 2014. Since then, they have fought for the rights of artists and community members to have access to spaces for independent artistic expression, non-profit social events and housing rights. Since then they have obtained a provisional agreement with the City of Paris to develop the project and have rapidly become a reference point for the best concerts, art shows and cultural events in the city. With a focus on sharing, community collaboration and accessible prices, this is definitely the place to be.

Aymé is a group of hyperactive mass culture overfed musicians, nostalgic of pre-teen love, Cock Robin, Johnny Clegg and Top Gun. Sharing world influences, a love for synthetic textures and pop taste for heroism, they’ve reconciled the collective unconscious of the 80’s and FM car radios to build a puzzle Worldwide music, described as “Lady Di’s funeral on a beach in Rio.” Their first EP Make Up is a preview of the upcoming album, somewhere between Breakfast Club, Peter Gabriel and a pastel sunset.

The Bowling Team
The Bowling Team is a bare bones rhythm & blues band comprised of American french painter Troy Henriksen, and his friend Lucas Fox, one time heavy metal and new wave drummer from London (Motörhead, Warsaw Pakt).Together they serve up songs about hope, love, desperation, the economy and Dennis Hopper…

Ken Parsons
Ken Parsons Maestro of the Underground is a Celtic Harper, singer, writer, poet and allround entertainer. He plays many traditional songs, chansons and covers from an extensive and incredibly diverse repertoire, from folk through crooners and pop to gothic punk and comedy songs.
