This is a triple-header, end-of-summer spectacular blowout event! Seriously, just one of these three would be fabulous, when coupled with the sundown waterfront location, but all 3? Count us in.
First, Brooklyn-based Francophone rockers, Les Sans Culottes, take the stage at 7pm. Originally influenced by 60s French pop icons like Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Dutronc, and Francoise Hardy, the band will be releasing their 8th recording, “The Gods Have Thirst” this fall. Expect to hear some of their musique pop from the new album.
Next, Microcosmos, some of the most gorgeous macro-photography of insects ever put on screen! Shooting with custom cameras and lenses that took three years to develop, the filmmakers turn a French meadow into an otherworldly adventure as its denizens – a seemingly infinite variety of bugs – crawl, fly, creep and leap. This is an amazing voyage into a surprising and often humorous miniature universe – a surreal, wordless visual treat for children and adults alike.
The third part is provided by creperie Le Gamin, which will be serving savory and sweet crepes, baguette sandwiches, and cotton candy (cotton candy!)
