We are very excited to announce a new partnership with Centre Pompidou’s Studio 13/16! PSRS has been invited to host special events and workshops at the legendary museum and cultural institution, starting with a performance from two of our PSRS Paris bands, Carbonation and Live Wire. If you missed the event, check out the video below to see how PSRS rocked the Forum!

Next up are two workshops (Songwriting and Fanzine) on the theme of rock and roll, self-expression, and DIY.

These ateliers were designed to accompany the Southwind Project currently on display at Centre Pompidou.

From the PSRS desks:

Rock and roll is more than just music.

It’s an attitude. It’s a lifestyle. It’s a celebration of the human spirit: our triumphs, our failures, our desires, our fears. Being rock and roll is about being you and doing your thing, despite what others say. You don’t need to play an instrument to be rock and roll.

In English, when we see that spirit, or that uniqueness, or that difference displayed, we say “THAT’S rock and roll.”

The boy who embraces his fears and gets on stage to perform: that’s rock and roll.

The girl who designs her own clothes to express her personal style: that’s rock and roll.

The kids who march for the future of the planet, defying the status quo : that’s rock and roll.

And when we first learned about Maxime and Mark’s voyage down the Mississippi in a small steamboat, our first thought was that’s rock and roll.

One of the best things about rock and roll is that it brings people together. We become united in our love of the band, our love of the music, and our commitment to the message. Park Slope Rock School’s two ateliers (Fanzine and Songwriting) will bring people together to share ideas, find our voice and create something that is our own.

Now THAT’S rock and roll.

PARIS: PSRS x Lollapalooza 2019

Lollapalooza Paris 2019

We’re SUPER excited to be back at Lollapalooza for the 3rd year in a row! PSRS is one of the main animators for Kidzapalooza, a one-of-a-kind interactive festival experience for kids and families. We’ll be bringing our mobile “school of rock” where anyone can get on stage and jam with PSRS band coaches.

This year will be even MORE special as we have one of our very own PSRS PARIS bands, LIVE WIRE, performing a 5 song set on the Kidzapalooza Mainstage!

They will be the only kid band performing at Lollapalooza and as you would expect, they’re very excited. They’ll be performing on the first day of the festival, Saturday July 20th.

For tickets, visit the Lollapalooza Paris website.

To get a feel of what it’s like at the PSRS jam tent, check out some of our MRE on-site interviews from last year’s festival.
