• Stripmall Architecture @ Le Chateau – June 27th

    An Evening with Stripmall Architecture (formerly Halou) @ Le Chateau de Jambon Saturday, June 27th 2009 @ 8pm With two weeks to go before showtime and still some limited space left, we thought it fitting to openly post for any last calls interested in attending a wonderful night at Le Chateau.

  • Summer Show at Le Chateau!

If anyone has not heard this yet, waste absolutely no time in rushing down to your local CD peddler and do yourself a geat service. Think Hooverphonic meets Black Heart Procession. But that isn’t really doing it any justice. Beautiful […]
