Phoenix | La Blogotheque (Take Away Show)
This is one of my favorite takes of Phoenix performing the song "1901" thus far. If you haven't heard of the website La Blogotheque and their Take Away Show, it's definitely worth a visit to their site. As seen in the above video, they put bands in public places and allow them to perform within the natural acoustics of the big city. Sometimes you can catch the shows on the cable tv channel Current TV. I think the channel is owned by Al Gore?
