Sure Thing: Phoenix at Park West 6/13
If you have not heard of French quartet Phoenix, currently on tour promoting new album “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix”, you will be familiar with their catchy alt-pop soon. “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix” is the fourth studio record from the alt-rockers, whose music can be likened to French friends like Justice, Air and Daft Punk.
Phoenix is Thomas Mars (who is also married to fellow hipster director Sofia Coppola), Deck, Branco, and Christian Mazzalai.
The band is touring North America as well as Europe through out summer and fall, and recently did a spot on SNL; the new album is set to drop on May 25.
The new music is a mix of their signature late 70’s – early 80’s light rock sound, mixed in with jumpy drums and hooky guitars. Nothing cheesy though, I promise. Listen to: “Fences”.
Currently sold out, expect more tickets to be released close to the date of the show.
