Daft Punk "Alive" tour. Amazing!

I saw Daft Punk for the first time on Saturday night at the Los Angeles Sport Arena, and they were amazing! I pretty much danced the entire time and considering I was sick with a sore throat and slight fever, I'd say that's something.

They started off with the musical code from "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and played it sporadically, but faster each time until their lights came on and they launched into the first song, "Robot Rock", I believe.

Daft Punk's show is ALL ABOUT THE LIGHTS! WOW! AMAZING! They had their stage look like a computer chip, a spaceship, the pyramids of egypt, TRON, and a volcano, all by just tweaking the lights, while the stage remained exactly the same. Just absolutely mind-blowing light show.

Highlights for me included: Technologic, Da Funk, One More Time/Aerodynamic, Rollin' & Scratchin', High Life, and Face to Face.

What I love about Daft Punk (I caught about 25 minutes of their set at 2006 Coachella, standing on the outside of the tent, peering in) is that they really DJ their set well, so all the songs are blended and not just straight from the album. Some songs, like "Around The World", were played pretty much straight forward, but others, like "One More Time", mixed in "Aerodynamic", and they just play with them and tweak them and build them to a fantastic climax.

My friend, Mike, and I were in the middle, maybe 1/4 to 1/3 back from the stage. It was so freakin' HOT! That could be possibly one of the hottest (temperature wise) shows I've ever been to. A couple thousand, rollin' and X-tweakin' kids dancing their asses off. Though the only drug I was on was Ibuprofen, I still had a hell of a time!

Great, great show.

If I saw them live I'd probably explode while dancing to Rollin' & Scratchin'. Oh man, now I need to put that record on. And dance.

They're playing Montreal in early August and I was considering going, but tix are now gone of course.

Luckily, their label-mates Justice are playing here in October, so I will go to that show instead and rock the fuck out to that French house bitchness, bitches.

Daft Punk has a pretty small catalogue, so when I discovered Justice I was so fucking happy to hear some similar-sounding, floor-pounding hotness.

I almost did explode! The only thing that would've made it better is if they had played "Phoenix" . . . then I really would have gone ballistic!!!!

Did they play Digital Love? That's probably my favorite Daft Punk song.

Although... come to think of it, it probably won't work that well in a live setting as it doesn't have that raw thumping bass that songs like Da Funk and One More Time have!

Sorry, Zoots, no Digital Love. It is a great song, but they really never slowed down that much.

They came out BLAZING and they never looked back.
