This Thursday begins the FNAC Live Festival, otherwise known as the best set of free concerts in Paris. Get your fill of indie bands playing in front of the Hôtel de Ville from 5:30pm-midnight every evening through Sunday. Check out the full schedule to make the most of the fest, but I'm particularly excited to see indie power-rockers Palma Violets (Thursday, 7:30pm), charming Italian jazz pianist Raphael Gualazzi (Friday 7:30pm), and definitely, definitely excited to see dirty/sexy hipster DJ Breakbot (Friday, 9:50pm), whose insanely danceable beats and long-form mixes are usually my summer soundtrack.
