Phoenix is a Grammy nominated French alternative rock band started during their childhood by Thomas Mars, Deck D'Arcy, Christian Mazzalai and Laurent Brancowitz in the suburb of Versailles, in the same culture that produced late-'90s bands such as Air and Daft Punk.
I got the pleasure of watching Phoenix live in Austin just this Friday at the music festival, Austin City Limits. "This is the biggest crowd we've ever had, thank you" -Thomas Mars (Lead singer) Told us before he put himself into the crowd. Beyond the best performance in all my years of watching concerts. The crowd in itself was a monster of screaming fans singing along with the beloved Thomas Mars who's voice reached across to everyone with the clarity of the band's instrumental sounds. I also give my love to Deck D'Arcy who rocked his blue scarf on stage.
