Rough Trade in PARIS!!!
Rough Trade Shops On Tour is back in Paris with its' winter collection this December and we're now pleased to announce our in-store events that will be taking place from when we officially open the doors on Friday 9th December at 7pm.
Rough Trade on Tour - Winter Collection will focus on the best albums of 2011, Rough Trade's Album of The Year and a typical Rough Trade edit of only the very best new music on vinyl and CD plus an eclectic selection of Christmas gifts and stocking fillers.
Just as Rough Trade Shops in London are much more than simply places to buy music, but also where you get to see and hear live bands up close, Rough Trade On Tour will feature live performances and signing sessions. A taste for Parisians of just what a great record store experience adds to a city’s cultural richness.

We Have Band are three friends.

A stylistic leap on from their debut album, the second entitled ‘Ternion” due for release in January is an intensely personal album that manages to be both uplifting and melancholic.

Jarvis Cocker's first collection of selected lyrics will be presented by the man himself using PowerPoint and followed by a signing session.
THURSDAY 15th DECEMBER
7pm SBTRKT (DJ SET)
SBTRKT is no stranger to writing, recording and releasing music. To date he's had multiple releases on Brainmath, Numbers, Ramp, Monkeytown and now home label Young Turks. Add to that reworkings of Radiohead and Goldie, and remixes of Modeselektor... However, this is his first full-length album. "This release is the culmination of a longer period of constant writing and collaboration, tracks on previous EPs were written as singular pieces. This record is much more of a whole project, more representative of my thoughts and ideas as an artist and each track was completed with the aim to be coherent together."
SBTRKT's debut album pulls off a series of impressive feats: it's bursting with fresh ideas, and yet it sounds immediately familiar. It's sound-patterns and rhythms can easily soundtrack the ecstatic hands in the air dance floor moments as well as reliving the monotony of the morning commute. Its influences are incorporated with subtlety and sophistication: dense enough to interpret, light enough to dance to.
FRIDAY 16th DECEMBER
4pm – 5.30pm ED BANGER AFTERNOON TEA & MUSIC
