Record Store Day
On Saturday 21st, independent record stores the world over will be celebrating the 5th annual record store day, with several events being planned for Paris. Two highlights will be two stores that are also record labels and event organisers; Balades Sonores in the 9th (http://www.baladessonores.com/) where breakfast will be served from 10am, and Fargo in the 11th (http://www.fargostore.com/) where a day of special events is planned.

Official opening of the Palais de Tokyo
After 10 months of renovations, the Palais de Tokyo officially reopened on April 20th with the launch of the La Triennale show. What was a space with much freely on display though seems to have become one charging an €8 access fee, so it remains to be seen whether it will still deserve to keep it's self proclaimed 'anti-museum' and 'rebel' tags.
For those looking for something truly rebellious, the annual intersquat festival should offer an interesting alternative. Events include film shows, music, debates and even barbecues!
Until May 6th
