I’m heading over to Capitol Records later this afternoon to hear Daft Punk’s Alive 2007, a document of the band’s recent, mindblowing tour. I’m excited, obviously, because for whatever reason it’s the Summer of Daft Punk in Young Hipster America, but also because it’ll be the chance for me to kinda relive the French duo’s legendary Coachella performance. It’s been funny for me to see that concert continue to grow in critical stature the farther away we get from it, but that glorious night on the polo fields was indeed a seminal concert experience, one that signaled the rebirth of a group that once seemed content to retire graciously to the house music canon.
But hey, why wait? Since the album’s not out until Nov. 20, let’s relive that sweat-drenched night right now.
