Phoenix will surprise you. This seemingly skipped over Parisian band are known to put on an amazing show and have the music to back it up. Phoenix are a synth-pop rock band that play a fairly eclectic range of music, but holding it all together are truly enjoyable well written songs. They are making their first Toronto appearance tonight at the Opera House and it hasn’t sold out yet. If you are looking for something to do tonight, get a ticket now.
Despite what you think, you’ve heard them before. Their first single “Too Young” had a prominent place in Sofia Coppola’s Lost In Translation, and “I’m an Actor” from their new album is heard on TV everyday thanks to a Telus commercial.
Phoenix were an opening band for Air a while back, they’ve got connections with Daft Punk, but for some reason they didn’t make the cover of Eye or Now this week. Although Eye and Now did write nice things about the show.
Phoenix play with Dogs Die in Hot Cars tonight at the Opera House. Tickets $17.50 from Ticketmaster, Horseshoe, Soundscapes, Rotate This.
