Difficult choice: Holy Fuck or Duchess Says + Les Georges Leningrad UPDATED

It's not fair ! On September 20th, there's two excellent shows I want to see. It's impossible for me to choose which one to attend...

Duchess Says and Les Georges Leningrad at Rouje (More info)
Holy Fuck at the Grand Salon (More info)


Good news (!?!), the show is cancelled. I can now go see Holy Fuck knowing I don't miss a good show.

According to Rouje, the show was cancelled a month ago by the producer. Newspapers made a mistake and published anyway. I did'nt check before posting... sorry about that.

Holy Fuck at Osheaga festival

I've just returned from the Osheaga festival in Montreal, my ears are buzzing like crazy (tinnitus) . I saw Holy Fuck and it made my day. What a great show ! Too bad it was so short.

Holy Fuck will be at the Grand Salon (Pavillons Desjardins-Pollack, Université Laval) September 20th. It's for the launch of the new season of CHYZ 94,3

Here's a video of them live at the Dot-Dot festival in Nothingham.
