Prime Social Group is hyped to add to their growing list of recently publicized shows with the big-name band Phoenix. French Natives Thomas Mars, Laurent Brancowitz, Deck d’Arcy and Christian Mazzalai created the four-piece group, Phoenix, in the late 1990s drawing from influences such as Iron and Wine and Leonard Cohen. The indie rock band took on a character of it’s own that spoke to listeners across the globe. After only their first album, Phoenix’s music was featured in blockbusters such as “Lost in Translation” and “Shallow Hal,” and preformed by the group during Superbowl XLV, Saturday Night Live, The Late Show with David Letterman, and more. They mastered their craft with their album “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix,” which scored the band the 2009 Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album, and featured the single “1901,” that hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Alternative Songs Chart. The band released their fifth studio album “Bankrupt!” in April of this year to kick off their World Tour. Rolling Stone says, “Phoenix succeeded by balancing a love for crowd-pleasing Seventies rock and Eighties New Wave with a 21st-century sleekness and a timeless sophistication.” The September 29th show in Ypsilanti, Michigan will definitely be one to check out.
