AM live at Terminal 5.

On March 19, 2010, Tulsa-based and New Orleans-raised indie band AM opened for French electro legends Air at Terminal 5 in New York City.  Their influences range from Sergio Mendes and Brian Wilson to Curtis Mayfield and John Lennon.  You might have heard AM’s songs on TV shows such as you’ve heard AM’s tunes on HBO’s “Big Love”, NBC’s “Friday Night Lights”, MTV’s “The Hills”, ABC’s “Brothers and Sisters.”  Their new album, “Future Sons and Daughters” is out now and the cover is a nice tribute to Herb Alpert’s legendary “Whipped Cream and Other Delights” album cover. After getting maximum exposure opening up for Air, we can expect this band to become huge any minute now.

You’ll have to forgive the really crappy audio quality as I was standing right in front of the speaker, but this video is definitely worth watching for the really trippy visuals that the band Air is known for.  This clip was taken on March 19, 2010 at Terminal 5 in New York City during the song “La Femme.”

Air

On March 19, 2010, New York City got a breath of fresh air, as the French electronic duo Air played a sold out show at Terminal 5.  The band consists of Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoit Dunckel, their music consists of upbeat to mellow electronica and their live show consists of a crowd going absolutely bonkers watching the band and their amazing screen projections behind them.  For those that do not know the band, they did the score for the movie “The Virgin Suicides” that came out a few years ago.  For those that do know them, they know that the band has 9 studio albums and rarely tours, so the show tonight was one for the memory books.  A fun fact about the band, the name Air is a “backronym” (a phrase constructed after the fact to make an existing word or words into an acronym) for Amour, Imagination, Rave, which translates to Love, Imagination, Dream.  The band played their biggest hits “Sexy Boy,” “Cherry Blossom Girl,” “Kelly Watch The Stars,” and “Alpha Beta Gaga,” a track that has nothing to do with the Lady of the same name.
