Johnny Montreuil (from France), with A Whale in the Thames
July 19 @ 8:30 PM
Johnny Montreuil is a four-piece band from Montreuil, France. Johnny lives in a gypsy caravan there, complete with circus tent and round-the-clock music. Johnny Montreuil’s style could be described as French Rockabilly with a Gogol Bordello twist. Their new album, Narvalo Forever, has quickly become a critics’ darling in France. Johnny Montreuil is also an actor, recently playing Django Reinhardt’s brother in a French musical biopic, Django.
High energy and full of playful antics, Whale in the Thames is a rock band that takes their fun seriously. They have been compared to Jonathan Richman, The Velvet Underground, The Feelies, Camper Van Beethoven, Talking Heads and The B52’s. The music has been described as nostalgic yet original – a breath of fresh air. With occasional songs in French.
