Here's last night's performance:

Phoenix - 1901 live on Vimeo

Their drummer is a blast to watch.

Does anyone else get a serious Eric-Idle-as-Dirk-McQuickly vibe from the singer?

I think the SNL perf had a bit more energy, but no denying the catchiness of this song. Hopefully this appearance will boost the album sales a bit...

I still say they made a huge blunder by not bumping up the release to coincide with the SNL appearance.

Definitely, everyone was talking about them after that. I guess they couldn't really expect that, and maybe they didn't even know they were going to play the show much in advance, who knows. Regardless, it's too bad the album wasn't out at the time, as I'm sure they would have sold a ton of copies after SNL.

My guess is that the packaging or something wasn't ready (cuz the thing had leaked already), and they probably didn't have much of a choice WHEN they played SNL.

just came home from seeing them at the wiltern....


it's hard to put into words what i just experienced. very few times (such as the 2 u2 shows i've been too) has a rock show ever made me so happy. it just made me feel so good. the band are the coolest, most relaxed guys i've ever seen. they seemed so happy and had so much fun, and the crowd just ate it up. you couldn't help but cheer for them. it felt like the audience was cheering the whole time. the music was immense, too big to describe. what a show. it's no wonder these guys played 3 songs on SNL, you just don't ever want them to stop. i only knew about half of the setlist, but every song was such a blast. viva la phoenix!

Fuck, I knew I should have gone to that show.

I saw them on the last two tours, so I'm not gonna feel too bad.

YouTube - Phoenix - 1901 - A Take Away Show

Not the best of Vincent Moon's work, but certainly not the worst either. The audio on the other hand is fantastic, and it sounds great acoustic like that.

Their drummer may very well be the most entertaining to watch drummer I've seen.
