Phoenix are currently on the West Coast for Coachella (weekend 2 starts today) and hit Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and -- shades of SNL -- performed "Entertainment," then a medley of "Trying to Be Cool" and "Drakkar Noir" on the show. You can watch those clips below.
As mentioned elsewhere, Colin Stetson will release his new album, New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light, on April 30. He recently released a video that combines two tracks from the LP, "In Mirrors" and "And In Truth," and you can watch that below.
Phoenix - "Entertainment"
