On March 2, 2011, I attended the VIP Press Preview of the Armory Show in New York.  There was a lot of great art to be seen at Pier 92 and Pier 94.  As I walked the show, I ran into Thomas Mars, the lead singer of the French dance band Phoenix.  When I went up and talked to Thomas, he was extremely nice.  I asked if I could take a photo and he said the magic words – “of course!”  Love that!  I’ve seen Phoenix in concert and they are great live.  Thanks again Thomas!
