Another month passed, with more posts last month than ever before, and consequently one of our
busiest months for traffic.
There are of course some internationally dates in March. March 17 is Saint Patrick's Day, March 20 is the Journée Internationale de la Francophonie, but most significantly March 16 marks the fifth anniversary of the start of the Vive le roq blog.
We managed a total of 24 posts in 2010. In comparison, there was almost double that amount last month on the site.
March sees acts like Yelle and The Dø play in London, but there is also an interesting event that is the Convergence Festival , featuring French synth pioneer Bernard Szajner, whose recently re-issued Visions of Dune album was featured on this site last year.
There are also some interesting releases ahead, with new material by Brodinski and Dominique A, amongst others.
As always, I can be contacted on johnkilbrideAThotmailDOTcom, with the appropriate punctuation where you'd expect it to be.
I'm always pleased to hear from record companies, PR companies and promoters, so do get in touch.
We're also on Twitter as @viveleroq or you can find me at @karnag
Thanks as always to the good people at the French Music Office in London and to the Institut francais in London for their help and encouragement.
Merci et à bientôt
