South Paris' really big show draws a huge crowd to the place Denfert–Rochereau. Pastis distiller Ricard puts up a regulation monster stage and giant speakers with lots of big decibels, and 5000 folks of all ages bring their beers and stand on the cobbles taping their sneakered feet. There's always enough to put up a fair cloud of smoke and the police keep a wary eye on it all without getting in the faces of the innocent. The acts have their own posters, thanks to booze and pop radio sponsors.

A bientôt à Paris
