Phoenix @ The ‘Dise
I love the Paradise. (Affectionately, thedise.com) It’s a great venue to see both up-and-coming and established acts, right in the city. You can buy tickets at the box office and avoid the additional fees from Live Nation. You can always find a great place to stand during the show, there’s hardly a bad view in the house. Maybe I love it so much because I’ve always seen stellar performances there… Well, either way, every Bostonian should experience a concert at the Paradise, so go do your part!
This Wednesday, I had the pleasure of listening to a few hours of tunes from the French alternative rock band, Phoenix. Playing together since 1996, their first album was released in 2000, featuring one of their most popular singles “If I Ever Feel Better.” They knew they wanted to be popular in the U.S., so despite French being their first language, wrote and recorded all of their songs in English. It may have taken them a while, but nine years and five albums later, the band is really starting to take off in the States. In fact, they just played on SNL on April 4… Check ‘em out!
