South Point, that is. Recall my Friday, Dec 21st "Weekend Update" post wherein I for the first time touted Phoenix. Well, last night Cheryl and I went to check 'em out in the Fever Showroom. Beyond being a kick-ass, first-class classic rock band, these cats are all so friendly. Very nice peeps (and, BTW, lead singer Tony Davich is yet another Santa Fe alum; tells you everything you need to know).
We had a great time. I shot a bunch of pics (100). Most of which weren't very sharp (these cats are pretty kinetic, hard to freeze 'em hand-held at low ISO), but I got about 25 keepers. The above shot is from the 'Make Lemonade' department.
I was gonna downsize 'em for upload, but I think I'll just leave 'em the way they came outa the camera (3 mb fine rez). You can click on any pic to blow it up full-size.
When I listen to these cats, I can't help thinking "man, these dudes could do Toto level smash mouth original stuff." e.g., from the new Toto "Falling in Between" CD, -- which I friggin' love -- tunes like the title cut "Falling in Between" and "Taint Your World" (mp3).
Phoenix are, to a man, A-List players. Go hear 'em. Free shows at the Fever Showroom every Saturday starting at 10:30 pm.
