« Alcoholic Faith Mission, Emanuel & The Fear, Motel Motel & others played Paper Garden's day party (pics) | Local Natives play SPIN/Ray Ban show w/ Titus Andronicus tonight (win tix), Cut Chemist is @ Red Bull Space »
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.
