Every year on the summer solstice, professional and amateur musicians take to the streets of Paris to play and mingle with one another for the Fête de la Musique. The festival has spread to various cities all over the world, and Portland chanteur Eric John Kaiser is hoping to inspire a similar kind of impromptu musical celebration after his set at the release show for his new EP, Portland Rendez-Vous. It's a trio of covers (plus one original) of French songs you might not realize you know very well: Joe Dessin's "Les Champs Élysées," Jacques Brel's "Amsterdam," Edith Piaf's "Padam Padam." Kaiser performs them with an expert balance of typical French instrumentation and a more urgent American rock backing. And you'll be able to join in the Fête after his set: Wear a beret and bring an accordion. NED LANNAMANN
