Turn a Blind Eye at So Frenchy So Chic
Paris is in flames.
Not the sexy, sizzling kind. Nor the violent, bloody kind of the 18th Century. But the tear-gassy public-transport-system-screwing-up, complex, pension-based flames that have become a hallmark of the 21st Century.
Yes, while it’s perversely relaxing to focus on one horror at a time, the fact is that while Australia is choking, America is running around naked covered in its own diarrhoea and Britain is in the process of stripping off its own clothes and doing the same but in full view of a tax-funded paedophile, other countries do still exist and are facing their own periods of turmoil.
So this is the perfect time to realise that being uniformly aware of all world issues is impossible and claiming that you are one of the more aware ones just because you read the headlines is an act of wicked hypocrisy.
Sometimes just blind ignorance to all of it is simply the most moral act.
Enter: So Frenchy So Chic 2020!
This January, Australia’s one-of-a-kind French music and culinary festival, So Frenchy So Chic returns to bring the newest and most-loved musical acts direct from France to Melbourne and Sydney.
With exciting new foodie partners, a hand-selected choice of wines and experiences for the entire family, SFSC will once again be offering a sensory destination of a different kind to audiences seeking a Gallic hit of culture in the middle of the Australian summer.
Meet the new Gallic disco queen Corine, uncover new music from French royalty Lou Doillon, celebrate Nouvelle Vague’s 15th anniversary, fall in love with the ever soulful Tété and dance along with Gotan Project’s Philippe Cohen Solal DJ set.
C’est la vie! But you only have to pay attention to a small, psychologically comforting part of it.
