Hello from France! We are here in the Paris hostel, about to play a secret show at the bar as a warm up for tomorrow’s proper gig. We just played the infamous Fete De L’Humanite, Paris’s largest popular music/politics festival, with an 80+ year history. The show was amazing, the audience was powerful, and we had a 3 piece horn section, no less! Check out a live video here!
This weekend we are making our UK debut in… where else? BRIXTON!! Very excited for this, please spread the word to your UK contacts. Its the Brixton Come Together Festival and its free.
We’ll be back in the USA in October, stay tuned for NYC show announcements and more new music + videos.
Soon, we’ll be posting some photos and video from our trip to Calais, France. Calais is a port city on the way to the UK. There is a large migrant movement there, refugees and immigrants from places like Darfur, Afghanistan, Eritrea, Morocco, and more, have crossed Europe seeking Amnesty in the UK. In Calais, they have a squatter’s camp where every night they try to catch a ride somehow across water to the UK where they will get some rights. In France they have next to nothing. You can learn more at the 'Ft Galloo' facebook page or do a web-search for “Calais Immigrants”.
see ya soon! - Leo Mintek, Sept 17, 2014 somewhere in the basement of our Paris hostel
