Phoenix at Barclays Center – 10/2/13
Phoenix
Phoenix

Phoenix played just about every hit song of theirs that you can think of. No obscure deep cuts or French songs mixed in – just what the fans would order up. After a continuous dozen or so of those songs performed without a break or much banter, Mars disappeared as his band-mates played the mostly instrumental “Love is Like a Sunset” while the screen behind the band depicted a drive through the streets of Paris. Until then the concert was low on glitz – mainly just straight singing and playing – but this was the first of a few wonderful little extras. The next was a blast of fake $100 bills into the crowdPhx-Barclays (3) before and during “Armistice”, followed by Mars jumping into the crowd – not for the last time – just a foot or two away from me as he sang the anthemic “1901”. Mars stayed close to the crowd, sitting at the edge of the stage with fans’ hands surrounding him for the one lullaby of the evening, “Countdown”. The slow song – which featured only Mars and Chris Mazzalai playing guitar – plus “If I Ever Feel Better” built the tension for “one of the first songs we ever wrote … a dance song, so feel free to dance”, “Funky Squaredance.” [2bitmonkey]

Phoenix have been on a tour which currently has the band in Austin for two weekends of ACL Festival (one happened, the next starts today [10/11]) and a surprise show in a high school gym. (Not the only surprise show at a high school to happen this week.) Just before the first weekend of ACL, Phoenix stopped in NYC for a big NYC show at Barclays Center on October 2 with The Vaccines. Their set at that show leaned most heavily on their last two albums — this year’s Bankrupt! and their 2009 breakthrough, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix — and they included a couple oldies too. Their full setlist, pictures and videos from the show are in this post.
