From New York City to Paris, France we party until six in the morning. The Hours Paris showcase on November 20th was a spectacular time. Reunions with our Parisian brothers and sisters from Kitsune, to Andre and others made it a particularly intimate evening. Starting off the night was Fires of Rome, who gave the Parisians a good gritty dose of R&R. Following was the lovely Brits, Cazals. Once again, Cazals sounded tight; loosening up the crowd with their riffs and snare banging.
After the live sets, we decided to get a bit more Euro and expose the digital tricks up our sleeve; Dan Black and Dada Life. Here, we witnessed rugs being torn up by the cutting of our Paris fans. Dada Life is a electric duo, pumping hard beats for all legs to feel.
Speaking of Dada Life, their anticipated album (from Hours point of view) is near finished. Get ready to have your breakfast all jacked up.
Now what? We have loads of work ahead of us, for example, Fires of Rome have a new image for their debut album You Kingdom You (see below). Also, we will be throwing another party here in NYC soon! So much to do, so little calendar space. For now, you all stay and and get down.

Our Showcase event was a blast! I think it is safe to say we will be throwing loads more parties and concert events; especially when people are down and anxious due to the economic/social environment. The best way to cure those blues is music and cutting rugs.
DJ Angola spun a great set, the Europeans went wild; pumping their fist and dancing like it's London in 1999. Fires of Rome had a decent set, they are a good band but new, so performance perfection is a matter of doing more shows and adjusting accordingly. Many would agree, Cazals had a dynamite performance. They were tight, loud in all the right places and Warren the drummer was banging like he just got out of prison. We'll be putting up live video soon, for now check the pictures! Talented photographer Faith Ann-Young was there with her artistic eye to show love and take pictures, these photographs are credited to her. Thanks Faith!
Here are some blog responses from the enchanting evening:
Next up is Paris! Where the The:Hours is more situated in the music, party and too-cool scene. You will be educated on the event, just stay tuned.
In addition to the showcase, we also had a pretty smashing time with Cazals. Drinking, interviews and photo shoots (we managed to get in on that action!) were the norm. In the nocturnal hours, we scampered about the city listening to Cazals guitarist, Luca Ciampi, DJ at Annex, Le Poison Rouge and Beatrice. Annex being the most receptive of his Italian disco, Euro-house, digital taste.
In any respect, we would love to see you at our next party; we're not so much snooty about who joins, just as long as your not a belligerent asshole. Until next time all; stay up and get down.

For those who may not know, Cazals are hot stuff in the U.K. Having recently toured with Babyshambels, their keen eye for fashion, great music with and dynamite lyrical content has put them right in the middle of awesomeness.
In order to avoid the real estate broker getting too suspicious, perhaps we'll reconsider putting up pictures of us tearing the place apart tonight. However, there are times when full thought is not practiced and we just do. Stay tuned for the glamorous life of The:Hours.
Also, come by and check out the showcase tomorrow; Hiro Ballroom, 371 W 16th Street, NYC. It is a FREE show, there will be an open bar from 8pm to 9pm, and then the sounds begin. Don't miss out!
