Looking for something different, yet fun and embraceable, for your dancing pleasure? Look no further than the French septet Caravan Palace, who cite among their influences Cab Calloway *and* Daft Punk.
The electroswing collective is coming to the United States again off their very strong third album <|°_°|> (pronounced “Robot Face”), and they perform at 9:30 Club on Wednesday, July 5. You can win tickets to go with Parklife DC.
Fronted by vocalist Zoé Colotis and founding members Hugues Payen (violin), Charles Delaporte (upright bass) and Arnaud Vial (guitar) alongside Antoine Toustou (trombone, machines), Caravan Palace crosses a lot of lines from swing to French house to new wave. They’ve released a whopping five singles from <|°_°|>, released in October 2015 via Wagram Music.
Watch the official music video for “Midnight,” the most recent single by Caravan Palace, on YouTube:

I’d love to score tix to Caravan Palace! My favorite song is Lone Digger! It’s an epic classic! Getting free tickets would make my 4th week and give me an excuse to take the full week off to explore DC.
Lone Digger is not only my favorite song, but a fantastic video. I would love to see Caravan Palace live!!!
Midnight or Lone Digger, choices, choices, would love to go…
We Can Dance is hands down my favorite Caravan Palace song. It’s basically the embodiment of a remixed classic cartoon! It would be incredible to be able to go and FINALLY get to see them live. I didn’t get to catch them last time they came around, so fingers crossed that this is the one!
I like ‘Pirates’ personally.
