Noisey Birthday, La Cigale, Paris October 23
For its firth anniversary in France, Noisey is organizing a little birthday party at La Cigale. Et y’a du beau monde.
Black Lips, bon, everyone knows. This punk rock band from Atlanta has no secrets for us. Frustration, this kind of new wave/post punk band that came out of nowhere is enchanting. Is it the right word? Just listen to their “Dying City”. And Bosco del Rey, a kinda weird character that popped out of the disco years and sounds like Buddy Holly. Just sayin’.
Rendez-vous le 23 octobre!
"The Production Line of Hapiness", Christopher Wiliams MoMA, NYC, Ends November 2
An exhibit at the MoMA is currently on stage. It’s a retrospective on the work of Christopher Williams, a knight of the darkroom who takes pleasure in using pop culture and advertising conventions against itself with a very delicate and riddling touch.
If you’re in NYC, try it out.
Gabriel & Dresden, Oct.16 Cielo, New York City
You’re in New York City. It’s 10pm, it’s thursday and you don’t know what to do. Well, Cielo is the place to be. Famous for being one of the most trendy clubs in the city, the place is trapped in a very hip district but it doesn’t show off about it. Cielo, which features a crystal-clear sound system, has won a bevy of Best Club awards in its half-decade of existence. And it deserves it.
On thursday, October 16, then, try to be there. Gabriel and Dresden are playing that night. This couple of DJs from San Francisco is specialized in hit songs, most of which are considered classics, such as Rise Up or Dangerous Power. It earned them an IDMA award for “best American DJ”, two years in a row.
Reservations are here.
Ranked 8th out of the 50 best restaurants in Asia, and you know there’s a lot of restaurants out there, Ultraviolet is what I would call a unique avant-garde experience.
In 2012, the French-born chef Paul Pairet opened “the first restaurant of its kind attempting to unite food with multi sensorial technologies”. From lighting to projections on the walls and even the tables as the first pictures feature (picnic UV), everything is done to mesmerize. And also make your dinner an experience to remember.
Today, apart from those who’ve been there, we don’t really have a precise idea of what a meal looks like, or even where you’re going to be when you take a reservation for Ultraviolet, but I hear it’s worth it.
And patience is requested - 3 months on the waiting list
IT’S OPEN HOUSE IN NEW YORK THIS WEEKEND.

And many more places.
Marques de Riscal Hotel - La Rioja, Spain
Frank Gehry is definitely a genius when you look at the Marques de Riscal Hotel. This hotel found a spot in the North of Spain in the middle of La Rioja’s Vineyards and it looks as if a colony from outer space had crashed there. The jumble of pink and gold titanium and stainless-steel sheets curves around rectilinear sandstone surfaces.
Inside, comfortable, spacious rooms, a fabulous spa, a library and a quiet rooftop where you can sit and relax with coffee, a glass of wine, whatever. The breakfast that comes with the room is superb!
Pan Deï Palais - St Tropez, France
If you’re not going there for its luxurious hotel, it’s recommended that you try the restaurant.
In the heart of Saint-Tropez, Hotel Pan Deï Palais puts on an exotic culinary display in an exquisite and peaceful setting. In this Asian palace, you will be taken care of in a cosy dining room or on a sun-soaked terrace in an elegant garden on poolside loungers. Its cuisine is prepared with exquisite exoticism. The restaurant combines Asian and local flavors with beautiful setting and incredible attention to detail.
Vous connaissez les créatures de l’artiste canadien David Altmejd ? Le Musée d’Art moderne présente Flux, la première rétrospective en France qui lui est consacré. Elle réunit des pièces inédites ou plus anciennes, ainsi que sa sculpture monumentale la plus récente et certainement la plus ambitieuse : The Flux and The Puddle (2014).
The Free Market de Paname is back this weekend for more craziness. Think about Camden, its cultural weirdness, its hippie menus, its breathtaking creators and its playlists you won’t know if you’re under 20.
The famous rendez-vous for craftsmen and insane artists will take place in the Marais, what you would call a trendy spot. Ideal if you wanna get amazed, or if you’re craving for a massage, or even ephemeral tattooing. You can even bounce on the sound of Dj sets, it’s all there and it lasts 2 days, Oct.11 and 12.
Here’s for the event :
Dj Harvey, Fabric (London) Thursday Oct.23,
He’s a rare gem and a legendary name among British Djs. They are few, those who don’t have at least a little love for him as he remains a major reference on the British scene. Well, for those who like DISCO.
From Oct.23, Dj Harvey is starting a little hit-the-road trip at Fabric. The event is presented by the Red Bull Academy and ends up in Bristol, where the Sarcastic Disco chief as he likes calling himself will, for sure, make a big show.
Cosmic disco, thumping funk-driven house, dancefloor-oriented techno and a whole lot more you will hear. All supplied by the hands of a master craftsman.
