R. Kelly! Phoenix (The Band)! Dan Gibson's Head Explodes!

Posted By on Fri, Aug 16, 2013 at 2:00 PM

As it stands today, if I made a list of my favorite active musical acts, the French band Phoenix (who performed at AVA earlier this year) and R. Kelly (who hasn't played Tucson to my knowledge, but was involved in a bit of drama involving a cruise cancellation here) would like both be on it. So, following a Coachella collaboration, hearing R. Kelly drop a verse on the new remix (although calling it a remix is a stretch...it almost sounds like R. Kelly added his contribution via cassette tape) of Phoenix's "Trying to Be Cool" is the perfect way for me to close out the week.
