Phoenix closed out their fall tour with a killer show at Austin's La Zona Rosa on December 17. Before the show, Roxwel got the chance to shoot an acoustic version of "Lisztomania" at their special fan meet-and-greet and interview two members of the band, as well. Recently nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Album (Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix), the talented guys in the band still radiate a humble and generous air. When asked about the upcoming Grammys, they said it would be their dream to perform at the awards ceremony with Prince, doing a mashup of their "1901" and his "1999."
Tune into the Grammy on January 31 to see if they get their wish, and in the meantime, check out some photos and videos from the Austin show!
Long Beach California rock/soul quartet Cold War Kids has just released their new 4-song Behave Yourself EP today, available exclusively on iTunes before the Jan 19th physical release. Frontman Nathan Willet explains that the EP "...is a form that makes a lot of sense to us. It's a fun, more frivolous way of putting music out."
