An Acclaimed Rock Band From . . . France?

Despite having a couple of their albums and considering myself a fan of theirs, I had never seen Phoenix play live until I found this clip of their June 2009 performance on the Late Show with David Letterman. They look exactly what I expected them to look like - skinny and pretty and French; all that's missing are the dirty little cigarettes on which you just know they were puffed before going onstage. These guys are a lot of fun - I love how the singer drops the microphone at the end of the song, and how the drummer worked himself into such a frenzy that Letterman was moved to ask him afterwards if he was going to be allright. Good stuff.
