June is a special time for live music in France. Cities and towns across the country will celebrate the annual Fête de la Musique, the national music day, on 21 June by staging free open-air concerts. A few days later, Solidays in Paris will kick off the French summer festival season.
 
French communities around the world are organizing their own Fête de la Musique events. In Dublin, this means the Let’s French festival, now in its fourth year. We’ll tell you more about it closer to the time.
 
Naive New BeatersAs an appetizer for the main event, Let’s French is putting on a pre-festival show: Naïve New Beaters (right) will appear at Twisted Pepper in Dublin on Saturday 6 June.
 
Who are Naïve New Beaters? Well, there are three in the band: vocalist David Boring, guitarist Martin Luther B.B. King and keyboarder Eurobelix. The band has just released their debut album, ‘Wallace’ - a mish-mash of electro, rock and rap.
 
We're not impressed by it, though. Boring’s semi-rapping vocal style, delivered in a Californian accent, can get a bit tiresome. Sometimes you can hear in there Thin Lizzy-style twin-lead-guitar riffs, the epitome of dumb fun. But more often than not, Naïve New Beaters are irritating.
 
Nonetheless, you can find out more about them by heading along to Twisted Pepper on Saturday night or visiting the Naïve New Beaters MySpace page.
 
The best-known track from ‘Wallace’ is their 2008 single ‘Live Good’ – we find the video more entertaining than the song:
