Returning to my host family after a weekend traveling in Belgium, I found the door to the house swung wide open and boxes of old vinyl records flooding the lower level. Electronic music shook the walls of the house. Stumbling upstairs, I found my host dad drinking wine and discussing the music with a friend. "Ecoute!" he said, gesturing wildly towards the stereo. Live music in France is a chaotic, community affair. Fans cluster together and dance wildly, smoking their cigarettes as they mosh. I once went to see a jazz-electronic band that performed inexplicably in laboratory jackets. From electronic music pulsing with the beats of France's different immigrant populations to local indie rock, French music helped me learn how to listen.
