This Bastille Day we suggest you check out the Loser's Lounge tribute to that deceased French crooner Serge Gainsbourg. A traditional Loser's send up includes a medley of guest vocalists accompanying Joe McGinty and his band on the theme of the moment, tonight, Friday and Saturday, the spotlight is on Gainsbourg.

An enormous influence on French music, Gainsbourg is known for such classics as "Je t'aime...moi non plus" and the duet he did with daughter Charlotte, "Lemon Incest." He also rose to prominence in France for many of his live tv stunts, including telling Whitney Houston that he'd like to fuck her and burning a 500 franc bill. The quintessential revolutionary, we can't think of a better way to celebrate this holiday than noshing on french fries and listening to brilliant and vulgar musings of Gainsbourg.
