This thread is the place folks interested in this gig can meet in advance online. Please post here if you plan or aspire to attend, if you can help with lodging, transport or other logistics, etc.

Be sure to buy and wear Alizée clothing if you attend - if only to hook up with other Corsican fairy fans, LOL! If you have a video iPod or similar gadget, why not load it with some Alizée videos and put it in your pocket in case Alizée comes up in conversation? And who knows? Maybe you can get your UEdS album signed!

Chateau Marmont
Music - Electronic
Paris FRANCE

Four Frenchmen, childhood friends, united in their love of synth music: dare we say it’s a tale of mystery and imagination, of friendship and self-discovery? Chateau Marmont’s story is half Stand By Me, half Solaris, half Logan’s Run and, yes, it doesn’t add up. They’ve known each other since forever, as children stranded in a hostile landscape dominated by hypertrophied bullies and pathetic louts. They found themselves and each other through synthetic music, so bright and remote in its promises of infinity and eternal bliss, so hard, cold and disturbing when its outlook turns dystopian Chateau Marmont remixed Poney Poney, Koko Von Napoo, Midnight Juggernauts and most recently La Roux, Heartsrevolution and Ladyhawke. Solar Apex is their first record. They come from a time when people still believed in the future. A time when the proto French Touch, helmed by Space and Jean-Michel Jarre, dominated the airwaves. The Alan Parsons Project and classic French soundtracks (think Francis Lai) still radiate through their music. And their name is resonant not of faded glories, awkward suicides, scuffed gold stars and velvet-roped junkies, but of widescreen romance, vintage melancholia and studied postures.

Smile Profile of SXSW 2011

What's Happening At SXSW 2011? profiles the SXSW event in Austin, Texas at which Chateau Marmont will play this year. It writes in part:

...for members of the media, down south for spring break means South By Southwest (SXSW).

For 25 years, Austin... (the #1 city in America in regards to music venues per capita, by the way) ...has been home to an annual conference bringing together music, film and—since 1994—technology innovators for a week-long extravaganza of panel discussions, concerts and nighttime merriment...

More than 2,000 bands and artists will flood Austin from Wednesday-Sunday, most playing multiple showcases and parties.
