Europe: truly a study in contrasts. On the one hand, there's the sophistication of 800-plus years of literary, artistic, culinary and cultural tradition that makes a city like Paris seem like a magical utopia of elegance and sophistication. On the other hand, have you ever been to a club in Paris? Actually, you don't have to, as long as you take a look at these photos from Parisian DJ collective Club Cheval at Check Yo Ponytail 2, which went down last night at the Echoplex.
It may help your consumption of the rest of this article if you keep in mind that I use the term "Eurotrash" affectionately. Because I'm going to use it a lot.
