Dialled up

Since the beginning of lockdown, live music has been one of the biggest losses, with musicians forced off the road and having to adapt to new digital formats. Now Anthony Vaccarello has conceived a new platform to provide our sonic fix: Saint Laurent Rive Droite Live Sessions.

Founded as an extension of Vaccarello’s curated cultural world, this new format will present a line-up of chosen musicians performing live at the Saint Laurent Rive Droite store in Paris.

First up is Parisian musician Franky Gogo. An artist who thrives on blurring boundaries, Gogo inhabits different identities with each work, a trait that reflected in their music: disrupting traditional melody via a sound that shifts from strident new wave synth to foggy, sensitive croons. Having previously played drums for the likes of Bertrand Belin, Theo Hakola and John Parish, Gogo’s new EP Fast and Too Much is their first solo work.

Franky Gogo’s Saint Laurent Live Session will premiere at 20:00 this evening online
