1:20 Laura & Anton
Laura Weinbach and Anton Patzner of Bay Area indie art-pop group Foxtails Brigade, taper down from their usual full-band arrangement to just violin, guitar, and voice for an intimate French-cafe jazz combo. Both seasoned players having toured Europe and the US, sharing stages with the likes of Tune Yards, Bombino, Jane Birkin, Bright Eyes, The Faint and more, the two bring their more hidden but equally engaging talent for elegant French chanson, Golden Era jazz standards and romantic original songs.

A French cabaret that includes two performers. Lark Batteau as Zizou the French gypsy sings and plays guitar and ukelele, Gregory Beeman as Gregore plays accordion squeeze box and prances about. There is story telling and interaction with the audience. We sweep people away to another place and time.

Quelques Souvenirs de Yves Montand
