Last night I had the privilege of going to Madison Square Garden to see Phoenix perform live. I had amazing seats — center arena, very close to the stage — and Phoenix was amazing. I think they are very close to outperforming MUTEMATH as my favorite live band to see. The drummer is always entertaining to watch and he delivers some incredible chops every time I see the band live.

But the one major surprise of the show was the appearance of Daft Punk! For those who don’t know, Phoenix and Daft Punk have always been friends (one of Phoenix’s members used to make music with Daft Punk in the early days) and over the years the two bands have kept close contact. But never would I have thought that Daft Punk would show up and play a set with Phoenix! It was stunning! The crowd went wild when we saw those iconic helmets and the mixes that Daft Punk made for some Phoenix songs were so good! This is definitely one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to!!
