Don't miss the 3rd annual
SERGE GAINSBOURG BIRTHDAY PARTY
This Saturday, March 31st - 8pm
@ 1630 I Street, in Midtown Sacramento
Featuring DJ Christophe and DJ Roger,
5 Live Tribute Bands, Film Clips, &
Light Show by pioneering liquid lightshow artist George Holden!
Join us for our 3rd annual celebration of French Icon Serge Gainsbourg (April, 2 1928 – March, 2 1991) presented by the Sacramento French Film Festival & Verge Center for the Arts.
Singer-songwriter, director, actor, photographer, provocateur, iconoclast, and much more, Gainsbourg, a major figure in the 1960's, 1970's, and 1980's pop-culture, took on the world through a fog of Gitanes and alcohol... Gainsbourg is still today considered as one of the world's most influential popular musicians and Gainsbourg mania is growing, thanks to such successes as Joann Sfar's critically acclaimed film Gainsbourg: a Heroic Life (closing night – SFFF 2011) and last year's sold out Tribute at the Hollywood Bowl. Come and celebrate the spirit of "Gainsbarre" with us!
