Music is More Fun with a French Accent!
I was lucky recently to have seen Phoenix at a sold out show at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park on a beautiful fall evening. The French pop alternative rock band rose to fame recently in the US thanks to college radio, Gossip Girl, appearances on Saturday Night Live and David Letterman and a Cadillac Commercial (no joke). Not all bands sound good live or are good performers but Phoenix hit both marks, with an exceptionally energetic showing from the very talented drummer Thomas Hedlund. Great weather, great venue, great friends, great band, a great kickoff to NY's fall concert season!
