Rupa’s Bastille Day Bash

Global fusion group Rupa & the April Fishes have good reason to celebrate these days. Earlier this year they released their debut CD, Extraordinary Rendition, and a tour including Canada and Mexico is scheduled to follow in September. This spring they received a Mastermind award as part of SF Weekly‘s program to celebrate local artists who are changing the creative and cultural landscape of San Francisco.

For the band with a Francophone lead singer today brings a fantastic reason for a fête—Bastille Day! Celebrate the spirit of romance (and Roma) and rebellion at SF’s Great American Music Hall tonight, Saturday, July 14, with Rupa & the April Fishes. Look for mimes in the moshpit and crepes in the balcony and Malamaña on stilts. Listen for MC Rai (North African and electronica), Les Croques-Notes (French chanteur classics) and DJ Mignane (French/Senegalese) at what should be a truly international celebration.

Earlier in the day you can catch the band on the radio on “West Coast Live,” a long-running live and unscripted Saturday morning variety show.
