Chinatown is a Canadian Francophone indie rock band formed in 2006 in Montreal, Quebec.
Felix Dyotte, a guitarist with the band the Undercovers, joined with pianist Pierre-Alain Faucon and singer/guitarist Julien Fargo to create the band Chinatown, adding drummer Gabriel Rousseau and bassist Toby Cayouette. The band is known for the song "Retour à Vega," which had been composed by Faucon for his previous band in 2002, and then covered by the Stills for the soundtrack of the 2004 film Wicker Park. Their own version of "Retour à Vega" was included on their second album.
Chinatown released their debut EP, L'amour, le rêve et le whisky, in 2007 on the Tacca Musique label, followed by two studio albums, Cité d'or (2009) and Comment j'ai explosé (2012), and the 2011 digital single "Tant pis pour moi".
