The Triplets of Belleville
Kidnapped by mysterious, square-shouldered henchmen, a Tour de France cyclist is spirited across the ocean to the teeming metropolis of Belleville. In hot pursuit, his near-sighted grandmother and faithful dog are taken in by a trio of eccentric jazz-era divas, who lead them to an underground speakeasy and the chase is on! The score of this beloved animated French film evokes Le Hot Jazz of 1920’s Paris and will be performed live by Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville with composer Benoît Charest.

Straddling the gap between The Byrds and AC/DC, the New Jersey rockers’ eclectic style and signature sound brings a devil-may-care vibe to music by The Who and Elton John, and continues to thrill fans with irresistible hooks and rapturously fuzzed-out guitars.
