i read an article that oakland is becoming the brooklyn of SF. i have never been to brooklyn, but if i go to brooklyn i'll be expecting BYOBBQ, live djs , dance offs, drum circles, and all around good people embracing a spacious backyard coupled with good weather.

last night i went to a phoenix show. they started off with "lisztomania", which is a great track, but i was slightly disappointed that they opened with it. i felt caught off guard -i wasn't pumped up enough to fully enjoy it. that soon shed and by mid lisztomania i was feeling phoenix to the max!!

things must be different in france, because there was none of the traditional band member introductions ie "and on the background vocals and lead guitar we have {plays guitar solo} this guy". they were just business, playing song after song after song with zero banter or hesitation. a few words were spoken when lead singer thomas mars said "we've never played this song live before, it's called fences". and at the end they said thanks, which pretty much wraps up the talking of the show.

i had a pretty large wantlist going into this concert: the new album has 2 singles, "1901" (footage of last night)and "lisztomania" (love this video mashup also), so they weren't really on my list as i knew these jingles would be in attendance. another single of theirs, and one of their most popular songs is "if i ever feel better" (also from last night), so i was sure they'd rock that one out too. "too young" from the lost in translation soundtrack was also a for sure at any phoenix show.

now some of the more obscure songs such as "love like a sunset" which is almost an 8 minutes song and "funky squaredance" which is almost a 10 minute song, i was not so sure they would play. but i hoped! nevertheless i found myself high 5-ing phoenix loving friends with excitement when the warfield started funky squaredancing. i especially liked how they created a funky squaredance sandwich with the bread being "rome" a song off of their latest album.

overall the concert was a huge success, and thanks to youtube i'm replaying the actual evening with footage shot and posted of last night's performance.


no idea where the fork and spoon came from...
