Sacramento Serge Gainsbourg Party

Join the Sacramento French Film Festival for all things French-related and Gainsbourg-related on April 13, starting at 7:30 p.m. For the past four years, SFFF throws their annual Serge Gainsbourg tribute party in celebration of the French icon and this year, they’re at it again at Verge Center for the Arts (625 S Street). For only $7, sip on pastis cocktails, which is a French, licorice-flavored liqueur, while listening to live music provided by Afternoon Tea Cup Collection and Peter Petty IS Dirge Gainsbourg! But what the admission really gets you is a seat for screenings of short films inspired by and about Gainsbourg himself. Gainsbourg, who would’ve been 84 years old this year, was a singer/songwriter, director, actor and jack of all trades popular in the ’60s and ’70s. Celebrate his life along with the SFFF, who plans on keeping the night lively with a French pop dance party and music provided by DJs Roger Carpio and Christophe.
