La Maison, Rocked
JM, Karen's Ballroom, 12.1.08
The French House in Beverly Hills was the hottest spot north of Havana last night, with deejay Charlie Sputnik and performer Sébastien Tellier rocking the maison after usual BH residential street hours. We spotted the KCRW front line Chris Douridas and Jason Bentley in the house for Sputnik and the man who has been referred to as "France's sexual ambassador to the US", Tellier. There can be no question: it's a very new French house under consul général de France à Los Angeles David Martinon and his wife Karen, installed this summer.
Tellier brings his sexual space garage tech disco nostalgia pop irony (included in the mix last night was Barry Manilow's Copacabana, which might have scuffed the Consul General's floor a bit), to Music Box @ Fonda tomorrow night.
