Phoenix Played SNL Last Night, And It Was Amazing - Video

Well, if you missed it, you really missed it. Phoenix played Saturday Night Live last night, and they simply killed it. The performance was completely loaded with charisma and charm, and at the same time sonically and technically unbeatable. It was seriously one of the best SNL performances we've ever seen. Given that the band isn't particularly well known in the US at this point, the crowd reaction at the end of the tunes pretty much sums up just how badass the band's delivery was.

As per our prediction yesterday (ahem), the band played "Lisztomania" and "1901". However, as though reading our very minds (or rather, our blog), they proceeded to close out the show with a killer version of "Too Young". We managed to snag the first two tunes for you off of Hulu, but "Too Young" doesn't appear to have surfaced as of yet. We'll keep an eye out. In the meantime, dig into these vids and enjoy some rock and roll awesomeness with your morning coffee. It really is that good. Promise.

And, just because we love you that much, here's the "Lisztomania" mp3...XOXO

I've been meaning to listen to their whole album for ages, some of my favourite bloggers have been gushing about this band for a while, but I never got around to it. but this post has convinced me I can't wait any longer, so excuse me while I listen to Wolfgang Amadadeus Phoenix
