Like shooting stars aimed straight for the heart of darkness, Folie Ordinaire take the swagger of Rock and the strut of Disco and turn them on their head. With Punk spikiness and Post-Acid electronics, they create a rhythmically pulsating live sound that defies categorization. They’ll be members of a futuristic leather-clad glitterati before you know it! Rock & Roll at it’s finest! Check out Folie Ordinaire’s unmissable live parties this summer.
