Phoenix @ Coachella 2012 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
Still in the States after Coachella, Phoenix played The Late Show with David Letterman last night, trotting out what's looking like will be the second single from Bankrupt!, "Trying To Be Cool." The band, like Depeche Mode a few weeks ago, also performed a full set for the "Live at Letterman" webcast. Usually, these are also filmed at the Ed Sullivan Theater, but for this one they moved the proceedings to the nearby Hudson Theatre. They played a good chunk of new album, >Bankrupt!, as well as a few older favorites and you can watch it -- and their actual Letterman performance -- below.
Phoenix will be back in NYC for shows on May 13 at The Apollo (sold out), and October 2 at Barclays Center with The Vaccines (tickets).
