Expect more of the same, with various acrobatic stunts and inflatable evil clowns thrown in for good measure.

Miles Davis "We Want Miles" Exhibition (France)
October 16-January 17
The life and legacy of late American jazz legend Miles Davis is celebrated with a three-month exhibition at the Musée de la Musique of Paris, France. Organized with support from Miles Davis Properties, the exhibit features images of Davis from celebrated photographers, concert video excerpts, works of art, sculpture and paintings inspired (and sometimes created) by Davis, rare instruments played by the famed trumpeter, and more. Davis played the last concert of his life at La Villette in Paris, and the "We Want Miles" show pays tribute to his life and times at the same location.
