ASHES TO ASHES
How long until Phoenix can play a show without fans wondering if Paris peers Daft Punk will make a surprise appearance? Since the latter duo joined the former four-piece during a show at Madison Square Garden two years ago, the rumors always seem to fly, and when Phoenix played Coachella last month, all they could produce was R. Kelly. Alas. Of course, you go see Phoenix because the band doesn’t need any surprise appearances: “Lisztomania” is the best song the Shins never wrote, and even a car commercial couldn’t make “1901” any less wonderful. Expect to hear both songs at the Apollo tonight, along with tracks from Bankrupt!, their latest album.
