It was a back to school night of sorts at the Hollywood Bowl last Sunday. A tribute concert to Serge Gainsbourg ensured that pretty much every parent from Oscar's French school was in attendance.
We brought a perfect summertime yummy picnic - prosciutto wrapped figs stuffed with feta, salumi, rose, etc...
The show was interspersed with interview clips with Serge. Alex caught this quip in the subtitles - nice quote! Ah, the gay French!
The show was unfortunately a bit oddly cast, with sometimes random, non-French singing people seemingly pulled from the street to slaughter the most revered French songs but Victoria LeGrand from Beach House was a welcome voice. Not only could she sing well (and in French), she had just the right amount of Beautiful Awkward, which made me think of Serge's daughter Charlotte.
I recently saw her new video and I love it! Love the clones, the outfit, the leather jacket, the dancing, and the right amount of creepy.
Speaking of Charlotte, while looking for this Terrible Angels video on the web, I came across this interview with Charlotte that le mari shot! How cool! It's on her website, click on the "interview" link.
Here's a pic of her parents just for good measure.
And an interview with her parents.
And for another good measure, I love this picture of her mother with her famous basket bag posted here strictly for idol-atry purposes. :)
