Phoenix Played "1901" On Letterman - Video

We're not quite sure how to emphasize our enthusiasm for Phoenix being in the country, but we figure cold hard evidence is a pretty start. Case in point: The band appeared on Letterman last night, and delivered a rock solid version of "1901" to the masses.

From here the band's making a quick jaunt across the country: six dates in nine days, starting in New York and culminating in Los Angeles. All of the dates are sold out but one (we're looking at you, San Francisco), so it's all about craigslist at this point. Regardless, get out there: it'll be worth it. We promise.


UPDATE: Stereogum has the band playing a stripped down boom-box version of the tune on Alexa Chung
