Ooh La La, an international festival of contemporary French music, holds its first London series. The focus on the last night of the series is on electro-pop: a hugely popular and well-executed genre among French artists. The classy, Eighties-toned pop of Lescop, who headlines tonight, will come over très bien to any fans of French pop legend Étienne Daho –  although he's got some nice choppy guitars alongside the layers of synths and organs. Tomorrow's World, who play a support slot, actually features only one French member: Jean-Benoit Dunckel of Air, who collaborates with Lou Hayter of New Young Pony Club to make toe-tapping synthpunk that oscillates between chilly and chill-out. Opening the evening is young singer and multimedia artist Heloïse Letissier, alias Christine And The Queens – a name inspired by Letissier's encounters with drag-queens in London.
