Phoenix

As you know, Madison Square Garden headliner Phoenix was blessed with a surprise appearance from Daft Punk, another French group who they are related to via early endeavor Darlin'.

Dirty Projectors and Wavves also opened the show (Wavves's first of two shows for the evening). The second was at Purevolume House with Matthew Dear and Two Door Cinema Club who headline Webster Hall tonight (10/21).

The MSG show was announced way before CMJ, but then became a CMJ show when CMJ announced the final CMJ lineup, though reportedly only very few badges were let in, and those badge tickets went to people who showed up to pick the tickets up at CMJ headquarters early that morning. Those who showed up early to the large venue thinking they'd get in with their badge, were out of luck.

(note from BBG: Quick question- can anyone confirm it wasn't a janitor underneath those robot suits? I smell an MF Doom-style conspiracy?)

A bit more about the show HERE. More pictures, the Phoenix set list (sans encore), and some video of the Daft Punk madness is below.

NOt sure what songs were played during the accoustic part of the encore but The Daft Punk portion of the encore included Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger played by both bands, the Daft song Together intro-ed into 1901, and then a Close Encounters segue into a 1901 reprise to end the show.

how did wavves sound in MSG? doesnt seem like their sounds would translate to an arena.

They didn't mix the songs into 1901, what Phoenix is playing is the live-only part of If I Ever Feel Better. The heavy electric breakdown that is only part of the live version of that song, it's not in the version on the record.

And then Daft Punk helped out during 1901. But the part where they're playing HBFS and Around the World, that's mixed into If I Ever Feel Better (which Phoenix almost always plays in the encore, immediately preceding 1901)

So there I was, rocking out to Phoenix... Having such a blast, and then came Daft Punk! It was my second greatest dream come true. (my first dream would be a free hummus platter at mamouns falafel house)

So this was basically a show for the people who didn't catch Phoenix the last 20 times they were in NYC the past year and a half?

Seriously, After this concert, I went home an made the finest batch of hummus this side of the mississipi.

Posted by Anonymous | October 21, 2010 3:58 PM

so many tools worrying about getting the picture or the video instead of dancing and letting loose. your buddy at work the next day will trust you that daft punk showed up. unless you ate all of his hummus then he'll probably just ignore you.

agree 4:44 - Please, enough with the cameras people, try to listen/groove/dance/whatever. You're never ever going to look at those crappy pictures and 20 second shaky movies. Enough.

What a tedious audience. So intent on filming the moment they clearly missed whatever moment was happening.

Posted by Clarkson | October 22, 2010 3:34 PM

the crowd looks lame.
