Opening for Lulu Gainsbourg

Who knew Serge Gainsbourg’s son was a dixieland fan?

The Sardines are doing a set before Lulu Gainsbourg takes the stage at Chez AndrĂ© at the Standard East on December 6, tied into his U.S. release of “From Gainsbourg to Lulu,” which pays emotional tribute to his dad Serge’s legacy and features the likes of Rufus Wainwright, Iggy Pop, Johnny Depp (for whom Lulu is a total dead ringer, btw), Marianne Faithfull and Scarlett Johansson (see below). It’s Gainsbourg fils’ first U.S. appearance as a solo artist.
