Daft Punk live

The word on the street is that Daft Punk is filming a live DVD called “Alive 2007.” According to the Daily Swarm in June, the film will document their European and North American stops:

The Alive 2007 tour currently includes stops in the U.K, Germany, France, Holland, Italy, and North America. The U.S. leg of the tour kicks off with a sold out show in Los Angeles at the L.A. Sports Arena which will be recorded for a future DVD release.

Apparently Daft Punk now live in Los Angeles and have been putting the final touches on their new live set. For those who have tickets to this weekend’s show, get your best robot groove on. I’ll see you on the dance floor.


Groove Armada rock the Bowl

groove armada rock the hollywood bowl

Groove Armada absolutely rocked it at LA’s Hollywood Bowl last night. Unbelievable. 17,000 people danced in an amphitheater designed for orchestra concerts. Even the grandmas were grooving. It was a beautiful sunset performance. They gave “Chicago” a raved-up techno ending and their final 15-minute suite, using previously unheard music and “Superstylin,’” took the whole Bowl to a higher dimension: Ghostly, euphoric synths wafted through the audience as thundering beats and delayed bass chords took us for an optimistic ride. Wish I could relive it again and again and again.
