The excellent electronic French duo of Nicolas Godin and JB Dunckel, better known as Air, are returning to North America for their first shows here since 2007! My first time seeing Air was at the Theater at Madison Square Garden when they were last here in May of '07. I was pretty new to the band at that point, and their live set absolutely floored me...so, SO good. I had three people (2 of whom I don't even usually ask for music advice) tell me to go and it was one of the best decisions I ever made.
Con for us New Yorkers...the show is at Terminal 5. After many debacles at that venue, the key is just to get there hellishly early and hold down a spot. It's worth it in the long run not to be far away or under that awful overhang. Anyway...here are the dates. GO SEE THEM (even if you are only into them *a little*). Their new album, Love 2 is out now on Astralwerks.
