After a beautiful, sunny, and spring-like week (my azaleas are currently in bloom), the weather offers us a rainy weekend. Flowers, while cherished, fade and weeds, while despised, flourish.
This evening, I have tickets to The Tabernacle to see Phoenix and Two Door Cinema Club, similar sounding French and Irish bands, respectively. The show is sold out, but to share the experience with you, above is a video of Phoenix performing Lisztomania at KCRW in Santa Monica last year.
The song is popular, and appeared on several "Best Of" lists for 2009 (but not mine). Below, if you can stand the cuteness and are not yet sick of the song, are a bunch of Staten Island fifth-graders singing the song in a school auditorium.
