Glo for the day (for night?): Alive 2007

Clearly, I need to get out to more "real" shows by "bands" instead of "DJs," or something, since Alive 2007 was probably the most memorable new music experience I had this year. Except, of course, it's not new music. Or, it is, but only because it's a remix. Too bad Vadim didn't get to attend. He might like the CD more that way. Anyways, it was a ton of fun. You can see how much fun below:

As annoying as the editing is here, it kind of captures how crazy the crowd was: how much writhing and yelling and hand waving you can get from such a mass of young idiots like this. Plus, it's a good representation of how awesomely coordinated their light show was. Then there's this video that the duo edited themselves, culled from video taken by a bunch of fans with digital cameras, in a kind of perfect youtube mashup kind of thing. (Read more about it on Daft Punk's youtube channel.)

But you all know all this already, right? You're way cooler than me. You know that those pix up top were stolen from that ancient news item on Pitchfork, too, don't you now? --RWK
